the most thankful thursday ever!

i am thankful for the best phone call ever from my surgeon- no cancer!!!!

now i don't need to worry about not seeing my gingersnap grow up!

i am thankful for my wonderful primary care doctor, dr. michelle fiorillo, she is so caring and thorough, and never makes me feel like i am lost in the crowd.

last month i went to see her, ladies if you have any of the signs of an ovarian cyst, or ovarian cancer, which are very similar, please go see your doctor!!!

on monday i went in for my laprascopic surgery, today i got the wonderful news, no cancer!!!

i am thankful for my loving husband, tom, definitely the strong silent 50s type of man.

i am thankful for my children

i am thankful to have the best daughter-in-law in the entire world, natalie has been my rock through all this, and i love her as much as my own children.

i am thankful for my beautuful daughter rebecca, she is my shining star.

i am thankful for my son bart, and so proud of him for serving his country.

i am thankful for my dog shimmo, who gives me more comfort than anyone will ever know.

i am thankful for my knitting, keeping your hands busy is very calming for the soul.
the pattern is basil from the pattern factory.
the yarn is my friend lisa souza's hardtwist merino petite in jellybeanz and vermillion, lisa made a special skein with 50 extra yarns of jellybeanz.
this is the second time i've knit this blanket with exactly the same colors, perfect!

should i be thankful that i am so wacky to do a half-kitchener for the bind-off?

i am thankful that luminen is finished in time for christmas! i hope natalie likes it, the size is perfect.

i am thankful that my friend jessica rose-kim of the fiber gallery could special order the lanaloft in cones, no ends!

happy thursday!
