It is true that I am merely 2/3 of the way done with the knitting portion of my middle daughters’ Christmas present (it will also need lots of ends woven in, fringe attached and blocking).
It is also true that I haven’t even cast on my oldest and youngest daughter’s Christmas knits; which include a Katniss Everdeen cowl and a stuffed Daleks.
There is irrefutable evidence to back up my claims of having a valid excuse for my tardiness. Days later my now-not-so-favorite-finger is still swollen and hurts like crazy.
I go in to the fracture clinic on January 8th to have it evaluated. That date just happens to be the birthday of three of my most favorite people: Elvis, Erin and Michelle. With that kind of positive universal energy I’m expecting nothing but the best of news. (it was only taken out of the splint for the picture, I promise that I’ve been a superb patient).
