I just wanted to wish you my best wishes for a speedy recovery, plus, I don't know if there is anything I can do but I sort of live in the area, so if you need anything, please drop me an email! Nova Scotia takes care of its own.


Please send my warmest wishes to Deb and her family. As someone who is chronically sick I understand the toll it takes; she must force herself to rest and allow time to heal her - I wish there was more I could do (being in Northern Ontario we understand the road issues and also the tenacity of 'Scotians.'

Be well Deb!


Feel better, expert sock designer!

My thoughts are with you and your family.


Deb - best wishes for a quick recovery. Hope you're getting some good drugs!


Wishing you a speedy recovery! We all miss you at KOL!!

World's biggest Deb Barnhill fan posting here. I've been following the hospitalization saga with compassion and anxiety. While my Diamante sock hibernates during the busy Christmas knitting season, I'm looking forward to the day I can return to my favorite designer and the socks that made my sock knitting dreams come true. If I could send you health through the mail, I certainly would. So many of us out here are pulling for you. Much love and a restful recovery.


Best wishes both to Deb and Mr. Pharm! Be well, be safe, and be home soon.


Man. Deb, that sucks. Big time. If I could, I would lend you some of my white cells, T cells, lymphocytes, and any other -cytes you might need to give you a leg up. Alas, all I have are thoughts and well-wishes, and good recovery vibes. Keep hanging in there.


Deb, sorry to hear you are out of commission for a while! I hope you will be feeling better soon and back on your (nicely-covered) feet.


Take care of yourself, Deb. I hope they're giving you the good drugs at the hospital. It's a good thing you know which ones to ask for.

Best wishes for a pharmaceutically assisted and speedy recovery.


I was going to write and offer my congratulations on your latest addition to Knitty (I am so hurrying through my christmas knitting so I can make myself a pair of those beauties), but I think I'll wish you well first. I hope you feel better soon. Surely they can do something about that inconvenient tube placement so you can get some knitting done?


Oh Deb, I Hope you are on the mend and heal super quickly! Being in the hospital sucks the energy out of you, so I hope that you are home and knitting up a storm in no time!


Hope you are on the mend soon!


Best wishes for a speedy recovery Deb. (and azure is beautiful!)


Hey there...
Guess I'm too late for the well wishes on their way to meet you but I wanted to share my little tale nonetheless.

I was in l'hopital myself a year or so ago for about a week. I was pretty down (but not out) myself. I couldn't stay awake long enough to knit cuz of morphine and just didn't have it in me. I used what energy I did have to go for little walks down the hall, which wore me out yet again.

Hubby was pretty worried. He was there faithfully for visiting hours. I asked him to bring me my knitting soon after I arrived, but didn't have the gumption to pick up the needles. Finally, the day before they let me go home, I started knitting on a sock. Hubby walked in with a big smile when he saw me knitting. He knew I'd be feeling like my old self before too long.

Take good care, a good long rest and you'll be doing that high speed knitting in now time! Best to you.


It sounds like she is on the road to recovery. And as a nurse, I am sure that she is being a good patient. Maybe you can take her some knitting soon.

You will be able to tell if she is feeling better because she will be working on a sock.

I hope that she gets better way fast.


I don't have any funny hospital stories! Just more well-wishes for her imminent recovery and return home!


Wow. I totally missed this. Praying for healing for Deb and snowless/iceless travel between home and the hospital.


Deb - I am wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope you are feeling better soon!


sending feel good vibes from upstate NY! I will be thinking of you and your speedy recovery!


All my best wishes to Deb, and of course also to the rest of the family!

Oh my this is not great news is it!? I send warm wishes for improved health SOON from here in the snowy Montreal area.
Congrats also on your pattern Azure. Its lovely as are all your productions.


I usually "lurk" but I feel that I need to come out of hiding! Deb, I hope that all goes well and that you are home soon with your family! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all!
