The flower button was one which I got for my birthday from this little girl's family. There are other colours in the set also, so I'm hoping the next two Tropical Lilys I do there will be one to match also.
This little number was knitted while I was in hospital with Kassidy, who fell and cut her knee. She did not just get a scrape like any other time she's fallen, but she sliced it to the knee joint and required surgery to clean and stitch it. She is recovering nicely now, almost able to stand on it again.
The hospital staff were amazed at how calm I was sitting there knitting......little do they know that the knitting was the calming element - I cannot imagine what my days would have been like without it. We spent from 4:30pm until 7:00am the next morning in the two emergency wards, I can't even imagine that without knitting! What do people who don't knit do when they have to wait for something??? Seriously, I'd love to know.
