Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.
~Daniel Webster

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.

A Hat and the WIP Cup

Thank you so much for all your prayers and positive thoughts for Jason! He’s doing really well this week and his counts are good. His next round of chemo will be on Tuesday, May 24th.

I stopped by Knit Knack at lunch yesterday to pick up some yarn for a hat and look who hung around while I chose the colors:

I’m going to knit the Halfdome hat for Jason. Since it’s almost June in Wisconsin, I don’t think he’ll need to have his ears covered!

I bought Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in navy and off-white and plan on starting the hat this weekend.

Next month I’ll be joining other knitters in the WIP Cup on Ravelry. It coincides with the World Cup and although I’m not really interested in soccer, I think this will be a great motivation to finish up some projects! Between June 11th and July 11th, I WILL finish my Salina and February Lady sweaters.

Nathan is feeling better, too! Thanks for all the well wishes :)
