Weekend Update - Tools

Dear January,

You tried to get me this year... with respiratory illness, cooler temperatures, and hangover psoriatic arthritis flares from the holidays... but I will prevail!

Sincerely. Sorry, Not Sorry,

Here are the tools I use to help me keep on crafting while January does her best to slow me down:

Red Ripple
Logan's Ripple
Plaid fingerless mitts
Thrummed mittens
Frog Pond blanket
Faux Cashmere Handspun
Silk Handspun

Weekend Update - Silent Night

Tis the season!  The season for respiratory infections just in time for Christmas.
Last year, I ended up in the ER for acute mastoiditis (an infection in the mastoid bone behind the ear.) This year it's laryngitis.  After listening to it fade away over the weekend, I could feel it settling into my chest.  When you have allergic asthma and are on biologic meds for psoriatic arthritis (that interfere with the immune response) it's important to jump onto anything that might become an infection. My body has very few defenses.

I'll be back to normal soon, but I've been meaning to get an update out there before Christmas, so we'll work with what we have!

Jor-El's snuggle blanket is a mini Random Ripple, as is my Red Ripple WIP

A personal update as well as what I've finished and what I've started crocheting.

Do you craft for charity? 

Find your local homeless center or veterans' resource center and ask them how you can help!
