I keep telling myself it's no use fretting, but I'm sensitive. When Hurricane Katrina made landfall, all I could think about was how a cyberacquaintance, Ray Whiting, was doing with his chihuahua Hazel in New Orleans. Today the news was New Orleans was being evacuated because the levees were breaking from the floodwaters. Of course there's no way to communicate with him either through cyberspace or otherwise. His daughter was to come either today or tomorrow to fetch him from there. How she will get through the mess is anyone's guess. My prayers go out to him and hope he is all right. In the meantime, I'm working on the Peace Blanket border. I'm now on border #4, ready to cast off the one end and start working in the other direction. Then the assembly at last!! This Sunday I started another project, opting to forego the Feather & Fan Scarf for the silent auction to a scarf in GGH Soft Kid. I got a scarf kit from Knit For Her Cure which had two balls of Soft Kid. Lisa at Unraveled had more Soft Kid on sale, so I picked out four other colors to complement the KFHC Soft Kid to make a striped scarf of my own design. Pictures later; it's late. The knitting is helping ease my anxiety. I'll be okay. Time heals. Now if it would only take away these friggin' hot flashes. . .
