I have pretty much stayed home the last few days, sitting on the couch, doing a lot of sleeping and some knitting. My mouth is pretty sore, but getting better. Now I just have to wait for the bone grafts to heal or whatever they do and we can finish the dental work. I am 44 years old and had to have a baby tooth removed. It was hollow underneath so there was a lot of drilling and rebuilding to be done. I thought maybe I had a cavity, but the baby tooth was just old and tired of being there. Tylenol puts me to sleep, so the pain medicine makes me almost comatose.
Any way, I finished Ben's socks. I did everything but the toe last night. If I had finished them last night, I never would have been able to get a picture of them. They would have been on his feet as soon as he woke up and that would have been it. They would never look the same again. I wanted to get a picture of them in daylight, and it is still dark when they get on the bus in the morning.
Once I got to the toe graft on those, I knit this bag for Kaitlin. The flap is a little wonky, but she likes it. I really wanted to make the flap longer, but at almost $20 a ball, I opted to knit until I ran out of yarn....so close. I just can't see buying another ball of yarn for what would have been about 10 yards of yarn. I figured if she didn't like the flap I would cut it off and felt it a little more. She was disappointed when I told her she could not use it today, as it was still wet.... " but it matched her outfit" Can you imagine what that would have looked like after she loaded all her junk into a still damp bag? Not a pretty sight I am sure. This is Farmhouse Yarns "Roxanne's Mohair" in the Sedona color. I am working on another pair of socks for her. I am to the heel flap on sock 1. I want to get a couple pair knit for all three of them before Christmas. I think I can do it. And Lauren's teacher wants an earflap hat, so I need to get working on that too. So much to knit, and so little time.
