Hail Weather

 I made the best of some rainbow yarn that was donated to our Chilliwack C ommon Threads knitting circle. Kate knit a wonderful Baby Sophisticate cardigan with this yarn, but it just hurt my teeth. I used it for highlights and stash dived for the white. We now have almost 3 layettes for the Hospital Auxiliary.
Just got in from walking the dog (we're managing the big block again, 4 miles) . We left in sunshine and by the time we passed the high school and turned the corner to head home, it was hailing. Really. Well, it is November.
And to keep a dear friend warm and comforted, the red cache coeur (Ysolda's Damson) was cast off Saturday night at work and blocked at midnight when I got home. It was dry enough to sneak to her at church before her husband had to go on a trip. I don't know how the results of her tests went, but I would like her to know she's not alone. I am not just a fair weather friend.
