Good News


I had my follow-up with the surgeon, today, and I got my pathology results. The 2.5 cm nodule in the left lobe of my thyroid (the left half was removed last week) was not cancerous. They had originally estimated a 28% chance that it would be, which isn't bad, but is enough for concern... This good result means I don't have to get the right half of my thyroid removed. Yay! Now, I just have to have blood tests twice-annually, later annually, to make sure the right half is keeping up. (If not, I just have to take supplements.) No more cutting! :)

I also took a picture of the ladybug on the Ladybug. (Every Ladybug spinning wheel has a little ladybug on it somewhere.) This one is on the rear maiden support.

Here is the Lorna's Laces "Rainbow," after plying both skeins (wrapped together) and setting the twist (washing and hanging to dry). It looks cute!

I finished the 2 oz of white merino that was sent with me when I picked up the Ladybug, and I'm ready to start my first painted roving on the Ladybug. That may not happen until tomorrow.

A very good day. :)

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay
