What good news. I am so glad to her that your dad is out of hospital and home. Have a lovely time by yourself, sewing. Well, sewing with the cats in attendance.............. I wonder what they will make of having you all to themselves.

Just catching up with things after a hubby with surgery and a computer that died! So sorry to read about the saga of your father. So hard to go through, but glad getting better is happening.

Am wondering waht the pattern is that you used for your chemo hat. Worsted or DK wt yarn? I really like it.
