I'm still here...

Well, I've joined another KAL...but this one is not all about me. In the spirit of Thanksgiving this is all to benefit charity, want to join me~~check out KUTO.
My first pair of mittens with another pair on the needles. If I'd known they were this quick and easy I'd made mittens a long time ago! The thumbs look a little funky, but once they are on it's okay. The second pair are on the needles.
This will also tell you that most of my weekend was spent on the couch with the heating pad on my stomach...yep, I took Ace's bed warmer~~Don't worry he has it back now! One day of feeling bad...lots of knitting gets done! My question is~~when will this "curse" leave me?! Every indication that things are beginning to change yet~every month it arrives again! (ToMuchInfo?)

Look what I found in my garden today! This is my heirloom climbing rose that has been through ALOT! She has a little blackspot but otherwise still November! It's always nice to find a smiling face amongst the falling leaves.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

Love the mittens!
As for the 'other'...sigh... I'm finally on the other side of all that, by a few years now, and let me tell you, it is wonderful. I think I was 48 or 49 when I was no longer a 'bleeding woman'...(and just in case you're thinking that was early? Had my first hot flash at 36 and up until just a couple of months ago was still having them non-stop, they've finally eased off... shew!)
Good luck to you!

The mittens are adorable and your climbing rose is too pretty. Hope you're feeling better!
