I am afraid this is not a happy post.
Dh went to see the transplant doctor today and received really bad news. He cannot have another transplant, ever. I'm still letting that soak in. The fungal pneumonia he had/still has, will never go away completely. Even if it doesn't show up on his lungs, it will never be gone from his system. If he gets it back again, they would have to take him off all transplant meds, so they could give him the anti-fungal meds, and he would end up rejecting.
It's not the news we wanted or hoped for but I have to believe that the Lord will work this out for his good. There's a reason why it has to be this way.
I have to run now and go bake something for the girls at knit group tomorrow, it's yarn tasting!
Pray for us, especially Mitchie, he's not okay with not being able to have a transplant.

This is for one of my friend Karen's daughters. She has three beautiful little girls that she adopted/rescued from horrible situations. The girls are delightful and they love handmade gifts. So I am making items for each of them. This one is for Emily or Em. She is the one that struggles the worst and has issues because of what happened to her. I found this pattern and immediately thought of her. It is Gipsy Girl from Addydae Designs. It's a free download on Ravelry. I used Berroco Comfort yarn and Cascade Pluscious. I think it turned out pretty well. What do you think?

I have completed yet another Christmas gift for a friend of mine, Sue. She saw the Wurm hat on my Ravelry page and said she would love one so of course I had to make it. It turned out really well and was a very easy knit. I have it in the washing machine to wash right now. I used Three Irish Girls in the Kell's Sport Base and the Brandy Alexander Colorway. My needles were 4.00mm-US 6 . I didn't even get through a whole skein of the yarn. I have plenty left over to make a scarf for my friend as well. My oldest saw the hat and modeled it for me so now she wants one to go with her mitts that I made her. What do you think?
