Lately, I've been injuring myself at the rate of about once a week. My formerly dislocated little toe is finally comfortable in a shoe again, so I can walk without limping (and maybe I can even run soon), so it was obviously time to get hurt again. The new kitchen knives jumped up and volunteered for the job a couple of days ago. Now a cut isn't as debilitating as a dislocated toe, and though this one bled a bunch (we're talking fainting at the sight of blood bunch), it didn't need stitches (in part because I said, Hell no, I'm not going to the Emergency Room). I didn't think much about it until I sat down to spin last night, at which time I realized that I could not spin fine yarns with my right thumb swaddled in Scooby Doo band-aids. So it'll be a couple of days before I can get back to my Minstrel handspun beaded lace scarf.
Luckily, I can still knit. And I did register another Ravelympics project- Genevieve's Graduation sweater. I finished the body last night and bound it off. I am going to figure out how deep the front neckline will go today, and pick up stitches for one of the front bands (I'm working the same picot green-white band as along the bottom of the sweater- it'll have pewter clasps, not buttons) (yay! no buttonhole calcualtions!). I'm going to try something different this time- I'm going to pick up and knit the bands before I cut the front steek. That will eliminate even the chance of stitches raveling. I think. I'll take pics. I'm not starting the sleeves until the front bands are done, because I need them in place in order to determine the sleeve steek position.
And as soon as I can spin without bleeding all over the wool, I'll get back to the lace scarf.
