I was just about ready to put on my jacket and head out the door for Round #1 of today's errands. I spotted this "Baktus," which was wound 'round my neck immediately upon casting off on Sunday night -- dangling unwoven end and all -- and thought I should just weave in the end, fill a bowl with Eucalan and water, and throw it in for a soak while I'm gone -- so I can wear it one of these days FOR REAL! But oh my gosh, fresh snow from all all-dayer yesterday and wonderful sunshine -- I had to go out and throw it down in the snow for some pictures before I did anything!
This is my second "Baktus" -- the first of the "Back-to-Back Baktus," as the third is on the needles now, my last skein of Hundertwasser being lovingly knit. They're all the same but different, just like the yarn, and I love it that way. I love, love, love these things.
So, NOW I'm going to fill a bowl and skedaddle out the door! Errands this a.m., medi-van service for Mom this morning as she has her second cataract surgery (next week, the fixing of a very crooked, very painful, arthritic finger) (anxious to see how that goes) (I wonder if she'll let me take before-and-after photos), an exciting photography-related appointment this evening. There's some other exciting photography related stuff to share... soon.
OMG, the happiest news of all -- saved for last. ; ) My sister had her first CAT scan following the "chemo vacation" she's been enjoying for the past 6-8 weeks -- and there have been NO CHANGES!! This means that the chemo holiday has been extended for another 10 weeks!! It is the most awesome news. Truly madly deeply awesomely.
