In Sept I was diagnoisesd with primary peritoneal cancer! Well bad news is
I LOST MY KNITTING MOJO, but as of Wed I got it back! I am so happy,happy happy. I am knitting a lovely little hat even though
I have a great hat collection already. I just wanted something
small and this is working. So now I sit and listen to audio books and knit. It is sooooo great. When I finish the hat maybe
I will be in the mood to pick up the baby blanket I am working on.
Oh, I am doing fine on my weekly chemo.
I just had to share getting my knitting mojo back

It was there all along, just taking a back seat for more important thoughts. So now there is a game plan and room for extra thoughts so the knitting mojo stepped up!

I hope all goes well for you.

Knitting can sometimes seem like a form of meditation, which I understand does boost the immune system. So this is good on a lot of levels. My thoughts will be with you, and enjoy the renewed joy in your knitting.

Hi Ditzy Girl Sorry to hear about the cancer but glad you are progressing Ok. As you are knitting away just tell yourself that this yarn that you have in your fingers links you to all your friends on the forum from all over the world who are thinking, praying, plugging for you 24 hours as day.

I finished my hat today and I have worn it most of the day. Now
I want to buy some nice red Xmas yarn with sparkles in it to make a Xmas hat for me.

I finally found the yarn on line at Mary Maxims. The shipping cost me more than the yarn, but that is o.k.
A pretty Xmas red with sparkles. Just what I wanted,plus I started a pretty pink one to have something to work on while I wait for the red.

Sounds like an excellent plan, Zola. Little treats for yourself are important right now.

I have wondered where you were; so glad you found your mojo and are back.

I'm sorry about your health problem, and glad you are feeling better and are back to knitting. Are you able to get out and about? We've had a few sunbreaks lately! Even if you enjoy the sun through the window, it is so good to see it in November.

Zola, my prayer for you is complete and quick elimination of cancer from you and your life. Your yarn connects my prayers to you, as Grand-Moogi suggested. {{{HUGS}}}

Shelia, I don't think I will be making it this yr, but
hope you have a wonderful time. Are you the lady that
move to N or S Caroline when you retired?

Zola, I am also putting you in my prayer bowl. It is an idea that came to me a couple of months ago. I have a big glass bowl on the coffee table in the family room. It is like a pumpkin shape with a small hole in the top. It is purple glass with white pebbles in it. I make a sort of stylised paper flowers and stick them in it. Each flower has a name on it of someone we are praying for at present. The thing is, when a friend or relative needs prayers you do remember to pray for them because it is natural to think of them occasionally. So the prayers are just little short prayers here and there during the day. But they are internal things. The prayer bows makes them concrete and external. They are a visual and tangible reminder. I will get a pic of my prayer bowl and put it on flickr. You could use any sort of bowl or vase.

My yarn came today. So I will cast on and start knitting.
It is really pretty, feels good and I am very excited to start. I will listen to my audio book The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs, what could be more appropriate? Well I am off to knit.

The yarn is really nice to knit with and the hat will be very
festive. I have never knit with this yarn before.

Glad the yarn is nice to knit with. I have written your name on a mauve flower in my prayer bowl.

Thank you Grand-moogi all prayers are welcome. In fact
I think because I have them is why I am doing so well. That and a wonderful support group.
My hat is coming along.

Nope, I'm the one who lived in NY for most of my working career and moved back to OR when we retired.

Best wishes for your continued recovery, hope to see you at one of the regional events before too long!
