Greetings, knitterati! This week I have received both MadelineTosh Sport and Pagewood Chugiak (sock yarn). The colors of both are delicious, as usual, and they are selling like hotcakes, so if you want some I urge you not to dawdle.
I also got in more of Pagewood's Melange, a collection of fibers and fabric scraps for spinning and other fiber art activities. This stuff is like a new box of crayons - I just want to play with it in a corner until my tuna sandwich is ready.
Last week I got some new, mostly one-of-a-kind dichroic glass buttons. These buttons are the perfect finishing touch for a special knitted article, be it a sweater, wrap or even a hat.
I seem to have hit a plateau in the healing process, which by all accounts is normal. I am trying to strike a balance between using my arm enough to get it working 100% again, and trying not to overdo it. Sometimes I lose my balance. Typical, I must say.
On days when the weather is like today I ache from my neck to my fingers, like an abscessed tooth. I hope I'm not going to end up with a large barometer on the left side of my body for the rest of my life. I can imagine my husband poking my shoulder on Tuesday to see what the weather will be like on Wednesday....
