I am almost finished my first ever baby sweater- just working on the sleeve (other one is finished). It was supposed to be a gift for a person who has went through a lot of heartache with miscarriages and infertility. This was supposed to be her rainbow baby- I was chatting with her on facebook the other day and asked about her pregnancy… she didn’t answer… I have been assuming the worst, and I am so grief stricken for her and her husband, that I cannot finish the sweater, and I have tried many times. The truth is, I don’t really know what has happened (if anything) so I might just have to wait and see if she has a baby.
Oh what a tricky and sensitive situation.
Totally understandable that you don’t feel like finishing the sweater just yet.
Hoping for good news for your friend.
Let’s hope for the best. There are all sorts of things that might be going on. I hope that you hear from your friend soon and can finish up the baby sweater for her.
My friend must have just gotten busy. She got back to me, and she is fine and so is the baby! I finished the sweater, (I have a matching blanket) and I am making a hat with my left over yarn! I think the fact that I am empathetic will help me in my nursing career. There are times when you (as a nurse) don’t need to say or do anything, but rather sit and cry with a patient- I can do that and I am so excited that I have found my calling <3
Very happy to hear about your friend. It’s always good to have friends ask how things are going.
Sounds like you are well on your way to being a fine nurse. Thank you for what you are doing.
