So far, so good.

Well, since Friday night we haven’t had any recurrence of DL’s incident, but we are awaiting news as to what tests our insurance will cover. We’re lucky to have a great children’s hospital here at Stanford, so there’s that.

I haven’t felt like knitting much what with our drama this weekend and the summer and all (the kids are already driving me crazy!), but I have been in a cleaning mode since our tiny house was overrun by 8 firemen and paramedics. Just look at today’s project:

Yes, that is a WIP stuck in there, along with a couple I’ve since given up on.

I’ve been doing some beading too:

This is one of the seed bead necklaces I made recently. Then I couldn’t bear to be parted with the black and purple necklace I made for Chris, so I made a new one:

it’s hard to see the main bead but it is really interesting, and very 3 dimensional.

The knitting I am working on is one of the scarves I didn’t finish in time for my teachers. I was working this one double stranded but I don’t like that as much and I don’t think I’ll have enough yarn, so I’m frogging it, and need some of the yarn in that huge detangle so when that’s done I’m going to redo it single strand and two-colored.

I’m really excited to get some gifts out of the way so I’m not stuck next year!

    Well, thank goodness. Let’s hope all the tests come back OK and the insurance decides to cover them all!

    I really like that purple necklace, completely understand why you couldn’t let it go.

    I’m so glad there hasn’t been another episode. I hope the tests come back ok.

    Love the beading!

    You’re [gasp] planning ahead? Good gravy.

    That necklace is gorgeous! Crossing my fingers for you that your son will be fine.

    Oh, that’s a lovely necklace, too!! 🙂 But oh my – what a tangle of projects… I always mean to make up a few sort of generic gifts… but never do. More power to you!
