Sitting in the Hospital.....waiting....have Hook n Needles will Create!!

Last week my oldest daughter was admitted to the hospital for what we though was her gall bladder and then to two other diagnoses but she is still with the same pain even with being on antibiotics and having 3 tests performed already and another test just ordered this am. She is so upset about still being in what she says is level 10+ stabbing pain. In addition to this my youngest daughter is trying to get use to all the things that she has to deal with with Lupus which I have to say the biggest one has been suffering with blurred vision and severe headaches. She was told that she won't be able to drive and I can't imagine being 19yrs old and being told you can never drive as your eyes are bad and you can have points of loss of vision due the pressure that builds in her eyes. I will say this I know that the God I serve is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever hope for as he has been so good to me already in what he has done for them.

I did however bring yarn, hook and needle with me and created the following caps and cast on a Beanie. These caps are a loosely replicated version of Afaya Iboumo's book

I love this project as it is very quick adn adaptable for adding embellishments and other bling as your spirit feels so inclined.

There is also a green one just like it that I will have to upload once I'm at home.

Here is the Beanie I'm working on for someone. I made up this pattern last year for Carmen and a lady saw it on my FB page and and ordered two so I'm busy getting that done.

Also being in the hospital has not been conducive to staying on my diet although the upside is all the walking I've done since then has been really great I need to get a pedometer. Well there is much more to share but I will save that for a later post. I have been looking into pulling out the serger and sewing machine and completing some of my sewing UFO's and there will be some Circuit news in there also. So until next time Be Creative!!!!


  1. Very nice ! You have this pattern down to perfection !

  2. Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I am praying for your dear daughter.

    Those hat's are fierce and making me want to start a hat project... I have been working on a crochet spring top and could use a break from it.
