The doctor’s Camelspin scarf(for the doctor)

reasons to go back to Urgent Care when there’s no medical need to. The men’s are Misti Baby Alpaca Royale, the doctor’s Handmaiden’s Camelspin 70/30 silk/baby camel, handdyed.

close-up of needle motifClose-up on the nurse’s needle–being baby alpaca rather than wool, which would have had much more spring to it, the motif relaxed out a lot when I rinsed it and laid it out to dry, so it’s less obvious what it is.  Which is fine with me.  That nurse’s needle was essential to my current well-being, and I wanted to design him something that conveyed his work in his scarf.

I separated the X’s for the technician’s by four rows of garter to give each X separate prominence, but it nevertheless all flowed together in a cohesive whole. I quite like that. It fits.

The doctor’s was the leftover yarn, done in as open a pattern as possible to try to stretch those 26 g as far as they would go, from the project I made my son’s fiancee for Christmas. Camelspin is really nice yarn, and when I saw that small leftover ball, it was one of those moments of, yes! That’s the right yarn! Purlescence didn’t have more in stock of that colorway just then, so I had to make do.

Off for a routine appointment today; I’m going to stop by Urgent Care on my way out and try not to get in their way. Wish me luck.

Bully for you, Friend! And for the Urgent Care staff who were so kind to you! I hope your “routine” appointment goes well.

I hope the Urgent Care doc,nurse and x-ray tech love what you made them! Everything is absolutely lovely and As a former nurse I always loved getting little gifts from former patients 🙂

How lovely of you! When Nicholas was about a week or so old, we went back to the maternity ward with a humongous box of Very Good Chocolates for the staff who took such good care of us, which is an understatement–the staff who saved one or two lives for us.

They look beautiful. I’m sure they will be appreciated.
