A nurse who knits…

Lucy #2

Thanks for all the congrats on my engagement. Since I’ve been engaged, the most common question has been “When are you getting married?” I get to tell them “I have no idea”. I still haven’t gotten used to calling Matt my “fiance”. I still call him my boyfriend in most conversations. I have to think about the title fiance. Old habits die hard especially when I have been calling him my boyfriend for the last five years. But I’ll get there.

Here’s a picture of Lucy #2 unfelted. It’s made with two and a tad skeins of Paton’s Classic Merino Wool. I know you can’t tell in the picture but it’s purple. Hopefully the light is better in the daytime so it won’t look so washed out. I made it all the way thru the long strap with 2 skeins then i had to dive into the third skein for the short strap. So I have almost a whole skein of yarn left. I plan on hanging on to random feltable wool so I can knit a huge felted bag.

I just took the bag out of the wash and it appears to have felted perfectly. I am holding off posting a finished pic until it’s completely dry to call it a success. I don’t want to jinks myself.

I just ordered a Charlotte’s Web kit from Threadbear. Matt is putting together color combos and I got the Tickled Flush kit. Yeah!!! Koigu is mine. Hahaha… I love it.



  1. Ok – I feel like a total shmuck – I stay away from blogland for awhile and you go an get engaged! Congrats to you! Marriage is a wonderful thing – so, does this mean that if I take another blogging hiatus, I will come back to find out you are preggers???

  2. What fun, a wedding coming up. I think you should come back to Michigan and get married at Threadbear. You should register there too…think of the yarn you’d get as wedding gifts! You don’t need toasters and blenders and sheets. You need yarn! Congrats. 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the engagement! Now you can knit a lace shawl to wear at your wedding. I’m blogrolling nurses who knit. Your blog has a convenient title!

  5. The questions never go away — when you start dating its when are you guys going to get engaged? then when you get engaged its well when is the wedding date?? Then after you get married its so when are you going to have a baby??

    Just take it all in stride. Don’t feel rushed by other people do things when you guys decide that you are ready. Congrats again!
