Hanks a bunch

Crohn’s flares: food becomes hard to digest and you don’t much want to eat anyway (so you try to at least make everything you do eat super-duper healthy.) Yeah, been through this before. And one of the things that happens is your muscle tone vanishes, just vanishes, faster than makes any sense.

Not this time. Not if I could do something about it, I told him last night: and so, treadmill, yes, and I was going to wind up yarn in the morning.

And that is how this 420 gram cone finally got turned into a hank. (Oops, broke a tie there. No, two. It is big.) It’s about two thousand yards and my niddy-noddy holds two at each go-round. Somehow, thankfully, it did not pop off the thing and fall into a million tangles on the floor. (You know, Alison, you really could break the yarn and make it into two or more if you weren’t trying so hard to prove you didn’t have to.)

It is scoured, as pre-shrunk as I could make it, and I may have to take a hair dryer to it. All the better to strengthen those arms with.

What a funny pun!

I pray you feel stronger by the time you read this. Sending a soft hug your way.

Heroic efforts that yield heroic results! Love that yarn – looks so soft and lovely. Stick to your guns, you are the master of your own destiny and you are proving that no matter the obstacle – you will prevail!

Good for you, for doing what you can, and that yarn, wow! I’m so glad it didn’t pop off the niddy-noddy.
