    I hope that all the test results come back with positive news for your daughter. My SIL had crohn’s disease but she had the severe one where it went through her bowel and she had many operations. Her 2 sisters also have it but they just take tablets and are doing well. Unfortunately my SIL developed liver cancer so she passed away 3 years ago but before then she was so much happier having the bag as it gave her more of a life as she could go out and not worry so much about it and she never ever complained of all she went through with her operations. I do feel for you and if it were my child I would feel exactly like you do which is very emotional. Thank goodness we have knitting to keep our minds busy in times like this. I am thinking of your daughter and am sending you both lots of hugs and good wishes xxxxxx

      Thank you! We are thankful that her Crohn’s has been well managed, so hopefully we can get her treated and back on track before it becomes a problem. :)

    Thanks for the drop spindle tutorial. I heard you mention the trendle, wonder if you would consider doing a tutorial on the trendle?

    • fibernymph says:

      A trindle works in the same way as any other top whorl drop spindle, really, so I probably won’t do a tutorial just on that…there wouldn’t be anything new to say! LOL In a past episode (Episode 10, I think), I did give an overview of how the trindle works, as in changing out the arms and such. If you have a specific question about using a trindle though, please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer! :)
