My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

the sweater

Some time ago I finished my first knitted sweater. At that time, I posted a few pictures of the process and an image of the finished sweater on a table. I hadn't actually modeled it. Part of the reason was that I still had to sew a button on. Well, last weekend I finally did that, and I took the sweater with me on our trip to Death Valley. While I was there, I realized the colors in the sweater echo the colors of the desert, and have since dubbed it my "desert sweater." Here are a few pictures of me in the sweater I knit for myself. I'm still in awe that it turned out at all. (Please forgive my bandana/sunglasses camping chic look.) We took these pictures while lunching at Artist's Palette in Death Valley on Saturday, March 15.

Its also quite warm, which is helpful on chilly blustery days in the desert.

On cold days I can just turn that collar up.

Here's the back.
