Work and Play

"We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." Anon This has been a "call" weekend. So I've gotten to work some and play some. Along the lines of work, I'd like to remind all my friends and family that NOW is the time to get your flu vaccine. No, flu vaccine will not make you sick. If you've ever had the flu, then you'll be sure not to forget. The other reminder is that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please be sure that you have had your yearly mammogram and any other appropriate cancer screening. It is too easy to put this off. I have finally finished the longtime project of ruffled sweater (see previous post). The best part is that I can now start some other projects. I have wanted to knit Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring Blanket for at least a year now. It is officially on the needles! Just getting started, but can hardly wait to get a few minutes to work on this. I'm using Cascade Eco Wool - taupe. This is the warmest, softest wool. This blanket is going to be really nice to snuggle up with on a cold winter night. I hope this project goes quickly!!!
