No more knitting for a spell...

and lots of one handed typing in my future blogging....because of this:


beneath that bandage lies 10 stitches. it ain't pretty ... and the story's quite humiliating. But let's just say that dusting and magnetic knife racks on walls do not mix well with wobbly chairs. the ambulance guy said it was one of the uglier slices (sorry) he'd seen. that'll teach me to try and be a better housekeeper.

sorry about the gruesome mental images. i will now placate you with a few photos.


the manos del uruguay prepster v-neck for mr. munchkin. he loves it...and i'm happy with the way it turned out. picking up the stitches for the neck was a pain, though.


apart from the pom-poms that must stll be made, this jester hat's all done. (ghetto malabrigo, of course.) no more typing...my right hand's starting to cramp. thank goodness for piano lessons - at least i'm used to stretching for a key. (theory lessons sucked ass, though.)

Smooth move...

Sorry, couldn't help it.

It sounds horrible however. And bleed...man, hand wounds aren't pretty. :(

I must say, looking at Mr.Munchkin makes me giggle, all guarding your yarn.

The sweater is lovely BTW. MMMM stellar

Oh dear! Hand injury - that is my worst fear. And a very real possibility, given my line of study.
Your knit bits are lovely, however... here's to a speedy recovery!

Owieee!!!

The scarf and hat look great though! And cut's heal fast, you'll be knitting again in no time. At least it wasn't the hand you work the yarn with!

OH MY GOD. I thought you were going to say you did it with one of your swords. That would have taken some serious explanation when the paramedics came to the door.

Is there anything you need? Assistance with anything around the house? Company? A sturdy step stool? (hey, a short woman's safety comes FIRST!)

OMFG. That sounds horrific. Awful. Wow.

What is going on here? Carpel tunnel syndrome, wrist problems, people falling down...what did our knit group do to deserve the bad karma of late?

I almost knocked myself out once putting dishes away - I stepped up on a chair and split the bridge of my nose open on the cupboard.

Beautiful FOs though. I hope you heal quickly...

Hrmmm, maybe we should cancel the knitting this week and go over to the Shambala Centre and work on that karma issue.
