Not the post I was going to write, but I'm just back from a trip to A & E. You would never believe I used to be a dancer, I tripped over my own feet coming up the garden steps this morning after putting some washing on the line.
As they are shallow steps there was no chance to break my fall with my hands and I landed with all my weight on my right knee - on the edge of a concrete step. You know that sick feeling you get when something REALLY hurts? - yeah.
Thankfully the prognosis is good, no breakages, just heavy bruising. Ice, Ibuprofen and gentle exercising of the joint followed by physio. The doctor was great, though a little too cheerful when he told me that it was going to hurt quite a lot for the next few days.
Still, this is here
Then it is on to finishing up the test knit of Moonfleet, fitting in clue 3 of Evenstar and then there is the matter of 3 ladies that I know who are all expecting.
I have ordered some Sugar n Creme cotton form the US and I may have gone overboard and bought Mason Dixon ( for the bibs and the burp pads) and itty bitty hats ( for - well the hats) and the plan is to make my travelling/lunchtime knitting all these little things for the next few months.
The main problem I have is that none of them know what sex they are having - so everything is going to be whites and creams and yellows ... yawn...
Picked up some pretty yellow DK yesterday to make a couple of shrug type cardis, an interesting conversation with several young mums about the most useful things that people knitted them flagged this one up. Lots of young mums use slings and papoose type things these days and while most of the baby is snug and warm, the arms tend to be waving in the breeze. Having that extra layer, just where it is needed is apparently just the thing :-)
So my plans for this weekend are fairly boring. Sit and knit and try to keep out of trouble. Shame the weather is so nice, I should really be out walking...
