I am here but...

things are kind of crazy right now. Work is busy and my daughter's daycare decided to close in a month. Nice.

I just picked up some Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran in a lovely gray. I'm going to try and knit a scarf in the next two weeks (deadline is set by others at work who are also knitting) for a co-worker who had cancer a couple of years ago that has come back with a vengeance. The doctors say he has 1-2 years left. He and his wife of only 3 years, were in the process of adopting a child. He is on chemo and still at work. He says he keeps coming because every minute he thinks of something at work, he isn't thinking about dying.

Sounds like you really have your hands full at the moment. Try to hang in there! I'm sending virtual good vibes your way. :)

You asked about this pattern:

I slipped one stitch for 3 rounds (mittens) and for 4 rounds (hat), so it is very easy pattern!

Sorry to hear about your co-worker, that is so sad. :(
