Updates and in need of some help

I've been in bed, hospital and couch for over a week now recovering....had a very tough time with procedures found out I have to have a full follow up I didn't pass the cardiology screening nor tests, EKG & ECHO.... so to a cardiologist to see if I qualify for a pacemaker (like I really need any more medical issues, I have enough to last an entire extended family for a lifetime!!) and when they took my liver out later in the week they had to take a few biopsies of stuff.. liver not looking to good....Hopefully will have those results by the end of this week.... Crossing my fingers.. in the meantime between kids needs, my own and resting I've been busy knitting again.. Boy does it feel GOOD! A little painful but nevertheless GREAT to be knitting again. Makes me feel better and not so depressed...I think the pain meds help me knit faster...heehee

PS paypal to,

(btw I have some patterns in it, I was published for the first time this year!!)

the pattern that I have been working on here is called Big Yellow Taxi designed by Becky Yoder
which I only changed the colors for July.....thought it looked pretty neat....

So I weighed out my yarn and all to make sure I had enough but opps.. Guess what not! Hoping someone can help me out here maybe possibly.....pretty please, my toes will be very cold....and another shade/color didn't look right.....


I'm in immediate desperately seeking if anyone happens to have a few
yards in their sock yarn leftovers of
Louet Gems Pearl in Cherry Red?

Dyelot 80.1112-8 but NOT necessary just need a few yards to finish up
a toe is all..

I love leftovers if you don't need them , can work out arrangements
for them please email me off list. I'm on the east coast but don't
care where it comes from ......

Then I'll be back to my recovery! promise.....yeah right! Seriously yes, back to the couch for a nap!

Wow, you've had a rough time! Take care of yourself. I'm so glad they're finding out what's going on, particularly with heart-related stuff. Rest and knit and get better!
