Knitting central …

just-finished-knittingIn between narcotic-induced drooling naps, I’m a knitting maniac.  Here is my finished hat and cowl – don’t you love the model?  (Lea Cloche by C Glowik MacDonald and Drop Stitch Cowl in Sausalito by S Drucing)

I had my surgery.  BTW, ‘partial mastectomy with bilateral reconstruction’ is cutter (surgery) code for PAIN.   I don’t know if I’m just not as tolerant (i.e. – a complete wimp) or what, but OUCH!  Anyway – I’m taking my meds, drooling, napping, hopefully healing … and every now and then, I knit a bit.

Here’s my latest project (Kingston hat by H Rush).  And, here is a photo of my next hat (Anemone by C Bordhi) – is that not ADORABLE??? (yeah – the baby is cute, too)

I hope to be feeling better soon, because I make a lousy patient.  And, I want to be in my studio!  [Stomps feet and heavy sigh]  We’ll find out … I see my cutter surgeon in a couple of days. 

Time to see-the-forest-through-the-trees, heal well and stop whining … Ahh – the meds are kicking in.  Next up – drooling …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at
