A Good Day

Morning hours spent here:Result: Whew! I wasn't due to start mamograms for about ten years, but I found an abnormality.
The tests weren't as horrible as I thought, but I am a bit sore.
Tonight: stress-free knitting once again!

Since I didn't have to wake up as early as usual, the morning light was perfect for photos of recent projects.

During the shop hop three weeks ago I couldn't resist a skein of Silver thaw (Noro) after a fellow attendee called the colorway (ahem) "gay". Well, I now have a beautiful and cheery reversable and double-thick hat to keep me warm while waiting for the morning bus this winter.

M, I'll wear this hat with pride!
Hrm. I'm thinking about giving it to her as a holiday gift... what do you think?
On Monday I started the purple shawl blob below with a little alpaca in the stash. It's a project for a co-worker who unfortunately did not have the same test results that I had this morning.

I've been sending good thoughts your way!
I don't know what Ms. M was talking about -- that's not what I would call that yarn! It's cool. Silver Thaw just went on sale at WEBS, so I was thinking of getting enough for a multidirectional scarf; may have to make that a scarf/hat set, I like yours.

Yay for good test results!

What pattern is the shawl?

All right! All those positive thoughts and prayers your knitting and nonknitting friends were sending your way.

Gee, that doorway is familiar. I was just there Tuesday for the yearly. Hopefully my report will be negative too and there won't be any surprises.

The hat is beautiful! Wear it yourself in good health.

Wonderful news. I am happy for you that everything turned out well. I hope things will work out as well as possible for your coworker.

I'm glad to hear your test results where good. What is the hat pattern?

Whew! Good to hear that the result turns negative!

So relieved - been thinking about you all day...

And, please, that "gay" hat would never go with Ms. M's coat.

I'm so glad your test results were negative! That's definitely something to celebrate. It's unfortunate that your coworker did not have the same results - I hope her cancer is treatable and her prognosis is good.

I love the hat!

Whew. That is good news. And for what it's worth, the first mammogram is the worst, because they do lots of extra xrays for a baseline.
