So close & sad news
First the 'tragedy' of my Victorian Lace' Diamond shawl for my Mum which I finally dug out of the wip basket this week to finish for whe nshe was due to arrive on Friday. This is how far I'd got at 4.30am this morning when I ran out of yarn.
I knew I'd run out at some point but I was kind of hoping that I may be lucky....... As I laid it out on the floor and realised athat the 3 skeins I had used were all slightly different shades anyway I thought I may as well use another skein that I had which was a much lighter shade so I did.
I've only got one corner left to do now. Tomorrow I'll be overdyeing it and hopefully that'll sort out the difference in colours.
Next time I knti with hand dyed yarn that'll take more than one skein please remind me to alternate between the different skeins as this is the 2nd time I've had problems iwth colour variations. You'd think I'd learn after the first time but I'm a bit slow.
Now, the sad news. My parents won't be coming here this weekend. Instead we'll be flying to Norway on Sunday for 10 days. The very sad news is that my Grandad passed away early this morning. I had a phone call from my Dad last night telling me my Grandad was very weak and he didn't think he'd have long left but it still came as a shock this morning. I was very upset this morning but I'm feeling calmer now. In the end I'm relieved that my Grandad didn't have to suffer any longer. Fro the past few months he's had a series of infections (after his stroke in February) and has spent a lot of time in isolation which made him depressed. At least now he won't have to suffer anymore.
