No Pictures This Weekend Afterall

Posted on

I’m being readmitted to the hospital for 5 days for more chemo today, instead of having the weekend at home with pixy-taking HusPartner.

This is because next weekend I’ll be traveling to the Raleigh, North Carolina area for a 2 day workshop with Iris Bishop! Ms. Bishop is an expert at creating machine knit fabrics and one of the machine knitting world’s treasures. I’m soooo lucky!

Here’s a couple of her books: (Photos from



Instead of getting out of the hospital and immediately driving 500 miles, now I’ll have 3 days to recover before the workshop. I’m sure I’ll get more out of Ms Bishop’s demonstrations with the intervening days with a few days’ recovery time first.

So I’ll be incommunicado for a bit. And maybe I’ll stop sewing long enough to get near a knitting machine!



About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!
