Our one and only is 21 today! He’s come far in 21 years and had more accomplishments than we could ever ever ever imagine! (I could go on for 5 pages here…) Graham started out just a little over 3 pounds. He tried showing up week 26 and showed up week 31. He was in NICU for only 9 days and got to come home when he weighed 4 pounds. Graham is celebrating today by going to class, having a test, having to make his own dinner and then just maybe go out for a beer. His roommate Brian won’t be 21 until tomorrow. I can just imagine those two waiting for midnight so they can go out and celebrate together! There was some talk of pumpkin ale at a local microbrewery. We are heading up to Seattle for the weekend to bring pressies, take Graham bike shopping and go to the Kelly Joe Phelps concert.
This morning Knitting Hubby is scheduled for arthroscopic knee surgery. They’ll be going in to vacuum and trim off some spurs. It would be nice if they did the surgery under local anesthesia so he can get back to knitting right away rather than having to wait for general anesthesia to wear off. Nurses Ruby and Rosemary will attend to him after I drop him off at the house post surgery.
No knitting has been accomplished lately. Well not since Friday night when Wheeless Nancy and I figured out we as usual were on the exact same row. (though she sped ahead of me over the weekend on the casual cables cardigan) I did finish spinning my OFFF roving and am about 1/2 way through plying. It spun up a lot darker than I imagined it would. Can’t wait to see it skeined! I’m wondering if there will be enough yardage to knit a scarf for my brother. I’m thinking the Yarn Harlot’s One Row Handspun Scarf.
