Thanks for all the comments about John coming home. We're all happy to have him here again, especially Isaiah, who has taken every moment to show John something new. John still has to be seen twice a week at the hospital, so it means a lot of sitting and waiting. One of the "benefits" is that I get to knit. I finally finished up the Elisa Nest Tote that I had intended to give to my sister-in-law for Christmas. It's a really easy knit and has a fun pattern, but I just couldn't squeeze in enough hours to finish it before Christmas came. Then again, I started it two days before Christmas. I like how it came out, although my finished edges didn't come out as neatly as the pattern's picture. The I-cord handle was the only tricky part for me and it quite uneven. I'm sure my sister-in-law won't care though (at least I hope). She lives by the beach, so I figured this would be great for toting toys and shells, or she can use it to go to the market. Anyway, all that is left to do is send it to her. Hopefully that doesn't take weeks!
