I'm sorry to hear that you have health issues again. Jeanne......but you are always such a trooper!!!...finding the positives in everything. Like Glo, you do make me giggle.

From one left hander to another...you go girl !!

Thank you Bev.  I was writing, rather "interestingly" with my right hand for a while then one finger typing on this computer but there's always a way to do things eh?  It's good to be back here again after a fair time away.  I am finding that crocheting is doing my left hand and arm more good than the physiotherapy exercises. I thought it might!  Onwards! 

Jeanne, I sympathise with what you're going through, and I so admire your positive approach. I finished my chemo in January and thankfully it has been successful, so I know there is light at the end of the tunnel! I'm still not back to full strength, but am so happy I can knit and crochet again, after a few weeks of not being able to.  Stay strong!

Thank you Lesley for letting me know that some loss of strength is expected.  I've been a bit wobbly today and that explains it.  :) Definitely "staying strong".  

I've misplaced who it was that said they were challenged by reading patterns, but I wanted to say that I find some patterns I "get" and others I totally struggle with, even those that are proclaimed "simple".  So if you find one pattern isn't working, please try another. I printed off several nice crochet square patterns and did Mary Anne Lokken's chain-stitch square easily but the next one I struggled with. So I tossed that 2nd print out and went to a 3rd pattern, which is more complicated looking but I found it easier.  GO FIGURE.  I'm just saying our brains all work different ways and on different days they can also work different ways! I can vouch for that one.  Just don't give up.  Whatever you can do is GREAT in knitting or crocheting.  Power on girls, power on. (and guys if there's any!)

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
