And by that I mean the Ishbel bandwagon that everyone jumped on many months ago. I've had the pattern sitting and never got around to making one. A few weeks ago a close acquaintance (is there such a thing?) was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. She has two little girls and is only a couple of years older than I am and it hit home. She has spent a couple of weeks in the hospital and has to go back for several rounds of chemo (at least) for a week at a time. She loves fall colors and I thought this yarn would be perfect.
I think it will be lovely and hope it makes her happy even for a minute.
