Hospital Project ~ Another DanDoh Knitted Scarf

Last Wednesday afternoon, I grabbed my purse, my knitting and a bottle of water as I ran out the door to take our 8 year old son to the emergency room for acute abdominal pain. Since then, a lot has happened. One nasty leaking appendix has been removed. That happened around 9:30 Wednesday night. Many nights have been spent with half our little family in the hospital and half here at home. And my knitting project that I grabbed on the way out the door, just in case there might be a few minutes of waiting that night, has been completed. And here it is...

Hospital Project ~ Another DanDoh Knitted ScarfIt's another Dandoh Scarf, just like the one I showed here last Monday, only made with different yarn. You can see in the picture above and below my little orange sticky note where I am keeping track of my rows, the same way I showed in this post some time ago. It's a very easy and efficient way to remember right where you are in a pattern, whether knit or crochet.

Hospital Project ~ Another DanDoh Knitted ScarfThese curly edged scarves work up so quickly and are so fun to make! I really enjoyed working with this Classic Shades yarn too. It just feels so good in my hands. I got this ball of yarn at the same time I purchased the yarn for my first Dandoh, from Nobleknits. This ball had more yards of yarn in it than the first one, so I actually added four extra rows in the middle of this scarf to make it just a bit more substantial. And you can see in the picture how much I still have left. Hmmm, what shall I do with that? I'll save it for a scrappy scarf or maybe a little baby hat or something.

So where is my sick little boy now? Sad to say he is still in the hospital trying his best to get better and hanging out with Dad for the night. When he finally comes home, I think I'll let all of you celebrate with me and we'll have us a little giveaway. The prize will be my first Dandoh Scarf, all ready to keep your neck cozy and pretty for the winter. So stay tuned for some good news, hopefully in the next few days!

Happy Stitching!

  • Glad your son is on the mend. Having a sick child can be scary. The scarf is lovely.

  • Oh, I'm so sorry for your poor little darling! I'm glad he's recovering and I hope you spoil him terribly when he gets home! The scarf is lovely, but I'm more of a crocheter. But I'll look at the site anyway.

  • Prayers are being sent from Arizona for a speedy recovery for your son. It's hard as a parent to see your children in the hospital. Hopefully the knitting helped the hours go by a little more quickly.

  • I'm so glad your little boy is better! Mine is six, so I definitely feel for you - so frustrating when Mom can't make them better with hugs ad kisses. Prayers and thoughts for all of you.

  • Oh my goodness! What a brave little boy he must be ( and what stored mama and daddy you all must be). Praying for a speedy recovery and a return to 'normalcy' for you all!
