I am from Dublin, Ireland.

KP is keeping me sane after two operations in the last 3 months, while I am recovering & resting!!!

I am only at the beginning of June with KP so a good bit to go!!!

Thank you everybody.

I had an elective total knee replacement on 23rd April then on 24th May was diagnosed with breast cancer!!!

NO SYMPTOMS, just found after a routine mammogram sooooooooo on 10th July a lumpectomy & 5 lymph nodes removed.

Shock & wondering what is next the worst part.

2 fairly big operations in 11 weeks is fairly tough on the body, then the tiredness!!!!!!

Lovely hot dry day here & I am taking it easy & enjoying trying to catch up on my KP!!

Keep crafting

To day I am celebrating 7 years of being a member on this forum.

I have had several health issues this year so am quite far behind in reading KP

Love the site & the many friends I have made here & all the things I have learned.

Happy crafting to all.

I have been knitting for over 60 years & only learnt about top down about 5 years ago.

I love this method. Little coffee bean pattern free online is my favourite.

Well worth trying , good luck

I have to ask........

How do you hang your toilet paper & what is the "fixed" way?

Very rude of your visitor to change how things are in YOUR house!

A little bit of fun all we women can relate to.

A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to
the woman behind the counter and said,
'I'd like to buy a bra for my wife. '
' What type of bra?' asked the clerk.
'Type?' inquires the man, 'There's more than one type?'
' Look around,' said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.
'Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.'
Relieved, the man asked about the types.
The saleslady replied:
'There are the Catholic, Salvation Army, Presbyterian, and the Baptist types.
Which one would you prefer?'
Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them.
The Saleslady responded, 'It is all really quite simple.'
The Catholic type supports the masses;
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;
The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills.
Oh and
Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD , E, F, G, and H are the letters used
to define bra sizes?
If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
{A} Almost Boobs.
{B} Barely there.
{C} Can't Complain.
{D} Dang!
{DD} Double dang!
{E} Enormous!
{F} Fake.
{G} Get a Reduction.
{H} Help me, I've fallen
and I can't get up!

Oh...They forgot the German bra.

I am just recovering from a lumpectomy 2 weeks ago, this will bring some lighter moments when I meet with my knitting group soon!!!!

I too have this problem, I have lymphodema. I taught myself to knit socks cos even bought soft top ex large were too tight after a few hours. I take a size 7 (42) shoe & made them by the pattern toe up 2 at a time but when doing about 1 12" rib at the calf I increased into every stitch on the last 2 rows & cast off with 1 size bigger needle loosely. They work a treat.
I used Drops Fable yarn for all 8 pairs. Sorry I can't load a photo - having probs with my camera & don't know to get hotos from phone to laptop!!!!!

Very timely advice for me- I am going into hospital for an operation on my right breast to be followed by chemo.

Dr found a lump during a routine mammogram, I am scared & have no symptoms, just recovered after a knee replacement 11 weeks ago.

I will try to remember the donkey!!!

I would love to do it but not on a very windy day or people messing to make it sway too much!
