The Foot

Well it seems time has caught up with me, my left ankle is shot so to speak.

The doctor says it is a combination of too many sprains and a tear in the tendon, and being flat footed has not helped.

So I figure in about four months I am going to have to cave in and have the surgery. The doctor is excited to do it, he says it will be a interesting and thrilling operation. He has me worried, good thing I like and trust him. He said they will take a scope and clean out the ankle joint, I have a chip floating around in there, then cut and reattach the tendon, and then go in and redo the arch.

I should have to wear a cast for like six weeks and then take another six weeks to learn how to walk again.

I got my niece and her husband to take me down South for the surgery and they will bring me home. Hopefully my ds will be in his new program so he will be picked up in the morning and taken to school.

And hopefully by the next night I can go back to taking care of everything. :)

And yeah I am a little scared.

Time to see if I can do it

All righty I am going to try and bookmark my own blog, well my other blog the one that is all deep dark thoughts that are brought out by knitting a certain shawl, which I think is good, therapy, and it helps me to clear a few dark thoughts up :)

So let see, if I can do it here... then I can do it anywhere, sides I want to link Ruth and Jo's blog as well :)

A second blog

Well, I am starting a second blog, mostly I am doing it as a group project to journal the progress of the cape we are doing for Meggie.

She is telling the history of her life, and we like the people of old sitting around the fire, listening to her tail. Only it will be set down in knitting instead of the written word.

I am going to include the new blog addy, in case anyone is interested :)

Wish me luck on it :)

Wolf Were

Well, I did it, put my first pattern up for sale, got verified and everything at Paypal, Ruth, bless her pointy head bought the first copy.

Before I forget, it is up on Raverly and is called Wolf Were.

The inside of the socks say were, and the outside say wolf, and when you cross at the ankles it says Were Wolf.

I don't expect to get rich off of them, but I have some more ideas coming, like Jo's Kind Of Thigh High, which I have changed the pattern on like a hundred times.

What is going on

Made it through to the new year, still waiting to hear on my grape accident.

Been test knitting and the yarn and patterns are so beautiful, but I can show or say the colors, or colours :)

Meet up with some great friends over Christmas Holidays, great talks of many things.

Joined so many knitting projects, but the one I am really interested in is a Celtic Cape, just hope I am not over my head.

Other than that, things are going okay for the time being :)
