It's a New Day

Hello Friends
Well what a summer!
Our little knitting group took the summer off and I was so grateful for the break as my neck pain had grown so terrible I found it difficult to even read. My doctor retired and it was a few months before the new doctor was open and after an X-ray she suggested physiotherapy. Yeah! I have been going to Cameron at Tidewater Physiotherapy since the first week of September and my neck pain is almost entirely gone! It's such a relief to be able to do things once again. You can't imagine.
    My synthroid is also been changed and I find that my interest in my hobbies has increased along with the increase dosage. Hyper/hypothyroidism is such an individually symptomatic disease that the best way for me to describe what it feels like, at least in my case, is to ask you to imagine being so exhausted after doing a minor task that you need to nap for two hours. Also that going almost anywhere causes so much anxiety that you just want to stay home. Of course people don't know that you feel that way because let's face it your too anxious to tell people.
   Yes indeed change. Lots of change.
   My friend Heidi Wulfraat of HW WoolWorks has closed her physical studio here and is opening a studio in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. I will miss her beautiful smile and visiting her and her wonderful shop. She is such a lovely and talented person and I wish her so much happiness and success in her new venture.
   Our little group is meeting once again every two weeks or so from 5:30pm to 8pm at 197 Buckingham Place in the meeting room,courtesy of our friend June, on the following dates; October 18th, November 1st and 29th. See you there.

Gypsy Petticoat

Here is a mash up of Stephenie Dosen's Gypsy Petticoat pattern from Knitscene magazine Sept 2012 issue, page 83. I used Berocco Ultra Alpaca.  The pattern can also be found on Ravelry. I starred it on February 11th, 2017 and completed it on April 26th, 2017. I absolutely love it.
