Slight disaster yesterday. As I pinned out the shawl for my sister’s birthday, the edge started to unravel, cue panic. I managed to pick up the stitches and bodged the edge back, but it left a less than perfect edge and a knot. I was slightly stunned. I have never dropped a cast off stitch. I debated not giving it to her, but today, looking at it unpinned, it is ok. The left point above is the broken one.
So, it’s wrapped and ready to post.
I hope she likes it.
Pulled the few photos I took on my phone of my trip, here they are, this is Arbroath.
My ankle is now almost back to its normal size, it still hurts a little if I turn to fast or wiggle my toes the wrong way, but it’s mending. The other night I dropped my spatula, I bent down funny and pulled something in my thigh, it’s mostly ok, unless I move the wrong way then it twinges.
This is on top of my continuing weird joint/tendon ouchiness. I have my physio appt next Thursday. Tomorrow I get to call for my blood test results (joint related) and I have a new hormone to try. Here’s to a little more get up and go.
Weekend was lovely, good food, company, decent weather for Scotland in February, sea air, beautiful views, sleeping, violet creams….
Then I fell off the edge of the road in the dark and did some damage to my ankle, as well as my dignity. Mild sprain and a few scrapes and bruises. I am the walking wounded, but at least I am walking….
Home safe now. Next time I leave home, I’m wearing a bubble wrap suit…..
PS I forgot to take my camera….. *doh*
Nearly finished housework.
I thought I’d show you all where I’ll be. This is the B&B.
Bag is packed. Keys got delivered. Cat food was bought. It’s 8.30 (ish). I have roughly four hours before I get the bus.
I have dishes to wash, the bed to sort, vacuuming to do, and a load of laundry to wash and hang. I should also tidy a little, as it feels like there is knitting/knitting paraphernalia everywhere.
For now though, I have coffee to drink and painkillers to assimilate. These two things will make all the other things possible. Including the ability to get my bag down 3 flight of stairs, with a clunky shoulder… I hope.
And NO Brane, I will not just knit a few rows before I get started…
