As to my husband’s release, we don’t know where we are. I couldn’t find anyone at the hospital yesterday to tell me anything. Helen has a phone number for a Person in Charge, and will try today. I just phoned the local care office – they didn’t know anything about it. They are investigating, and will call back. I’ve also left a message with the District Nurse who will have to come in daily for insulin injections. Has she heard anything?
Poor man – Helen thinks that he is himself responsible for the idea of “Wednesday” whereas her contact at the hospital had only promised “end of the week”. He will be devastated if it’s not tomorrow. I will be glad of even 24 hours’ reprieve.
And as for knitting – I finished the ribbing on the 2nd Kaffe Fassett sock yesterday. Fifty rounds is a lot, but I like a lot of cuff on a man’s sock. The rest should go fast. And the half-brioche sleeve is doing well, too. Four more increases. Then the next job is to decide on the arm length.
My current thought is to finish this sleeve, which includes a good deal of shoulder-saddle and yoke, and then lay the poor thing aside yet again while I finish the socks and knit the stripey hat, both as potential Xmas presents.
Here we are in mid-November, when the mss of the Vintage Knitting Project is due to go to the printers. I stalk Susan Crawford these days, as we enter the second year of waiting for the book. She has finished chemotherapy (with surgery and radiotherapy to come) and is active on social media. I have found nothing at all about the book. Her Ravelry Group is where I expect to find news first – there has been nothing there for the last 18 days.
