I took it with me to Disney, but forgot the pattern!

Went to the chemo appointmemt today and have now sucessfully completed one repeat. The first time I tried it I made a mistake and had to un pick the darned thing!

It is very compelling, and is a very suitable 'knit' for the onology department!

Good news today BTW, comparative scans show that all tumours have shrunk!

Oh hooray about the scans, that's brilliant

Well done with the scarf, it is strangely addictive, isn't it. Bet the medics are impressed though!

Blandmum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:28:41

I didn't show them. They already think that dh and I are mildly mad as it is [wik]

OMG! how fantastic mb, so pleased

the results not the knitting

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:30:32

Surely not

Pruni, you know you want to

<perhaps viral DNA?>

great about the scans, bit weird about the scarf !

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:43:23

Well, sadly it would look exactly like the pattern mb is using given the level of detail, but maybe you could fashion it into a kind of viral shape....<tails away weedily> (another flat just gone on the market opposite btw)

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:44:07

I love the fact that people are reading this thread even though the title clearly involves DNA and knitting

Blandmum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:47:04

It isn't that hard a knit, tbh, it is just a bit of a bother remembering where you are in the chain. I really should invest in one of those little row counters.....do they still exist???

a fabbo picture of viral DNA

Nice for a fairisle jumper????

Fillyjonk Tue 27-Feb-07 18:51:54

viral dna-but its more a crochet job, innit?

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:52:04

That would be nice, wouldn't it? You could embroider it on afterwards.

<waves back at hoxty>

Fillyjonk Tue 27-Feb-07 18:52:39

oh pmsl, one of MN more surreal x posts, i think

Blandmum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:54:19

Oh LMAO! That was good!

Where else on the internet could you find two knitters posting a picture of viral DNA.

I so love this place, it makes me feel 'normal'

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 18:54:21

I'm sure it would be possible to rig up a cuddly one of these , wouldn't it?

Yup, surreal is about the size of it

marthamoo Tue 27-Feb-07 18:59:15

Oh goody! Another DNA and knitting thread. <<<Tries to think of something intelligent to add. Fails.>>>

marthamoo Tue 27-Feb-07 19:00:19

Look! Wool!

Tamum Tue 27-Feb-07 19:01:03

Gosh, thanks for that moo

marthamoo Tue 27-Feb-07 19:04:43
