Knit my cares away!

I've been working on health stuff for a few months now. I get tests done and they tell me to do more tests; and then they tell me there was nothing to worry about!

No matter what, I can always use my hands and knit all my cares away. Just in the last week I learned how to follow a pattern for my first baby bib. (Pattern here!)

And I wrote and executed my first pattern!! I'm so excited that I can work on these projects as much or as little as I want. What a great week!
