... that ends well. My husband is doing great (well, he's a little sore). He had a radiofrequency ablation for a variety of cardiac arrhythmias that had become increasingly stressful. We're knocking on wood that they're all gone, and we can start the New Year right. Thanks for the notes of concern!
During the 6.5 hour procedure I had lots of time to knit. I must say that I was very thankful to have a meditative and relaxing pursuit to pass the time. I dabbled with some socks, worked on a scarf, and started and finished a Calorimetry.
I used Patons SWS, inspired by Coleen and Laura (though I haven't seen their creations in person, I trust their judgment).
The other thing that kept me occupied was listening to Cast On. I unexpectedly received an Ipod Nano for Christmas, but didn't have time to load it up before our travels. I hurriedly downloaded two episodes of Cast On and wished I'd loaded more - it was simply wonderful and made the wait time pass much more quickly.
