  11. Dear Kate,
    Best of luck tomorrow!
    Thank you so much for the package, it arrived two Friday’s ago during one of our crazy crazy heat waves. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to write, we were away with family for a little while, trying to “Avoid the 100.” (My brother’s way of saying get out of the heat wave!) I knit up a few gauge swatches and I’m just about ready to start work on the sweater. Your pattern is going to challenge me to finally learn some garment shaping. It’s about time I move away from lace rectangles and triangles! Thanks for everything and I’ll be thinking of you over the next few days. Lots of love to you and your family.

  15. Good luck from a lurker/new reader! I have gotten so much out of reading your posts about your recovery – and am a great admirer of your designs. Transmitting healing vibes to you!


  16. what a lovely brooch.

    good luck, crossing fingers “und Daumen gedrückt” (pressing thumbs on top of fist-tis the German equivalent of finger crossing, but the more luck the better-yeah?)


  17. There’s so much well-wishing headed your way, Kate! So many of us thinking about you as we have all these months and will continue to do – remember that! I’ll look forward to your next post – your blog is such a gift. Thank you!
