Charity Knitting

Henry and I went to visit my mom in Carmel over the holidays. She had heart surgery right before Christmas. One of her arteries was 90% blocked and they put in stents so it would expand, which hopefully will help prevent any future blockage. She's recovering nicely, with some help from friends around her and couple of on and off home care ladies. Thank you to those who sent good wishes for my mom. Her birthday is coming up next Tuesday. If anyone wants to send her a card just email me: vhkeys at yahoo dot com, so I can send you her snail mail address. She lives alone in a senior community away from any other neighborhood, sometimes she doesn't get out for days. Any outside communication is always welcome. Here are some of the knitting she'd done in the last couple of months. They are going to various charity groups in our local hospitals and shelters.

What beautiful knitting! Is everything allright with your pug? I worry that I missed something because I haven't seen him mentioned for a while.

Happy Birthday to your mum!

She does such beautiful work! She really cranks out the projects! What does she usually use when she knits? Acrylic or wool? Send me her address and I'll send her a card. And glad she's recovering well from her surgery.

I love the little knit halter tops. Reminds me of the tops my grandmother used to make for me and my cousins. We called them TV tops. I guess because they had this repeating box pattern on the front. I'll have to find a photo and post it!
