Just when I think......

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes for our daughter. The trip only produced more questions than answers and she will undergo more testing. *sigh*
The trip to the hospital was a blizzard nightmare and when the truck driving hubby was gripping the steering wheel and the girls were silent I knew it was serious. (couldn't tell anything by this blogger's sweaty palms...lol) There were white-outs and we crept at 25 mph most of the 75 mile trip. Instead of 1 hour 15 minute trip it took us over 2 1/2 hours. The return trip wasn't much better.

I did get a little knitting accomplished between 'braking' and gripping my own 'steering wheel' (aka the knitting needles). Keep in mind I'm the co-pilot ;).
I've been trying to find the right pattern for this yarn and I think I've found it, Hermione Socks. I can't find a link but if you're a ravelry fan you can find it in the pattern section.

We were gone 9 hours and apparently Mr. Bettis was bored. My snow boots are by the front door where they've been for over a month. No one bothered much less knew the boots were there however I found them on the kitchen floor minus buttons (and we have not found them so I'll let you guess where they went). The elastic button straps and velcro straps have been thorougly chewed. *sigh* Just when I think he's behaving he proves otherwise.

Poor Mr. B - framed again! Doncha know it's a test? She deliberately leaves the stuff where you can get it. Don't fall for it!!

Love Hermoine - I just knit her up. Looking lovely in that yarn. g

I have a pair of hermione on the needles someplace around here. It is so simple and it turns out so well.

Here is hoping ya'll will find the answers you seek and they won't be awful. Hope it all gets better, soon!

Oh dear. And Mr B's attorney is so busy right now... Maybe she'll work for a pee pad for her new pup?

LOVE that yarn and the Hermione pattern is somewhere in my queue or faves, or both...

LOL Chan is right...I might work for pee pads. ; )

I'm with you on the 'braking'. The hubby laughs at me about how often I use mine when he's driving. lol

Tell Mr. B to straighten up or I'll sic a ferocious chihuahua on him. /snort/
