FO,self indulgence and IVF update

Saratoga Shrug
Pattern: Saratoga Needlworks
Yarn: Adirondack yarns cotton, colorway chili peppers
Time to complete: give or take 3 months

Here's a shrug I finished recently, I bought the yarn at the Knit Cafe in NY city last year at the Knit out. I got the pattern free in Saratoga Springs last summer. I had a difficult time getting the collar to fit correctly, it was way too tight so I frogged it back and used some huge needles.
Steve and I are in our IVF cycle now and things are going well. I'm feeling 100% better than in March and on ultrasound this morning I have 36 follicles. Which have the potential for a whole lotta eggs baby! The retrieval will likely be early next week. The doc says it looks like we'll be able to do a 5 day transfer which greatly increases our odds. I'm also doing accupuncture before and after the transfer.
I have been practicing a little self indulgence lately doing what I want, taking naps and best of all I had a massage this morning. It was absolutely the best thing I have done for myself ever. Will update soon, keep your fingers crossed!

I found your blog when I Googled the Saratoga shrug. I,too, got the pattern in Saratoga Springs when visiting with a friend. I struggled with the fit also and gave it to my 16yo daughter. You did a great job.
