No knitting news. In fact, I won\’t be knitting for several days at least. Yesterday at school I smashed my finger in the bathroom door! (I guess I\’ll do anything to get out of attending a workshop.) Luckily, it was a district wide workshop and my mother was there. She drove me to the hospital, which amazingly was just about empty. A few x-rays later, the nice doctor has determined that my finger is not broken, just badly smushed, and oh yes I need a tetanus shot since \”I can\’t remember\” is the wrong answer to \”When was your last tetanus shot?\” So I now have this lovely splint covering my middle finger, and if I\’m not careful about how I hold my hand, I\’m making an obscene gesture at everyone.
All of this just when I was close to finishing M.\’s hat. I have made him mittens out of Sirdar\’s Snowflake that he absolutely loves (no picture because he always has them at school when I think to take the picture.) And now I\’m about two-thirds of the way done with his hat. I just need to knit another inch or two and then I can start shaping the crown. I probably would have finished it today if I could have been knitting last night instead of keeping my hand embedded in an ice pack. Hopefully I\’ll be back to using it in a day or two.
Here\’s the hat:
