Sad news

Things have not been going well this week. The Girl sliced herself open over some stupid boy. I could kill him. Large portions of Monday and Tuesday were spent at the hospital. She is in the adolescent psych ward. On the plus side, she is cooperating because it is awful and she wants out. She actually misses school! She starts on medication today, hopeful we will all get through this mess.
On the knitting front, I have been too exhausted to knit much the last couple of days, but I need to get some wristers done for The Girl before she gets out so she can cover up her cuts.
One of the psychologists at the ward told us we have been enabling her by not giving her more stuff to do around the house. Of course, he also told us we could not tell her what to do. Therefore, I am not sure how these things will be completed, but we will see.
I am also working on my first sweater; it is the Mason-Dixon perfect sweater. I am taking a class. I missed Monday night’s class, and I am not a far as I had hoped to be. I have the back done and part of the front. I need to get cracking on it. I hope to have the front done by next week so I can start the arms, but I do not know if that will happen.

Here is a picture of a beret I knitted. It is from Folk Hats. I love that book!

I hope to start writing again on a more regular basis. I have been very busy the last couple of months.
