My health has been up and down, nothing terrible- just a bit of a decline- and I have also managed to stab myself in the leg with a knife. As it was quite a decent stab, with the end of the blade perpendicular to my actual leg, I have made blurry photos so you won't have to stick your fingers in your ears, close your eyes, and say 'La la la la la ' very loudly to avoid the horror!! I could see the actual inner workings of my leg inside the whole outer layer of skin and fat!! The chemist said I could have a stitch or three if I could go and wait for hours at the General or I could pay a bazillion dollars at the after hours clinic, as of course all good injuries are after hours, or, I could play hospital at home. I chose the last option. So with SteriStrips, antiseptic and waterproof dressings in hand I crafted cure. This far I have no red lines running up my leg and it seems to be healing nicely. I don't really care if I have a scar, I already have scars, including a large one from my port insertion!!!
My ability to craft has been up and down too. I have knitted none of the Blake's 7 sock #2. Instead I started new socks inspired by Baudelaire. I have decided to knit the socks top down, so I just turned the chart for the pattern upside down, added a few purl stitches to surround the cable I doubled, and away I went!!! In light of the very tenuous link, I have named my socks Greenery Snickert: not that they are an Unfortunate Event, but they have more in common with Lemony Snickert's Baudelaire children than with the French poet!!! The absolutely lovely wool was a present. I have been saving it!!
On the topic of bags, here is a bag , modelled by The BareNakedLady, for Wee Jock's Mum's birthday. Wee Jock looks just like this, except he only has one eye!!
