I also had a very helpful text message from Knitting Under Water (Hi Anne!) this week and she suggested something for the thumb that I think is really going to work.
Better? Yes? I would like to work on the horse a little more, I'd like it to be a little clearer but I'm quite happy with this now. Happy enough that hopefully I can CAST THIS ON NEXT WEEK!? Let's hope so.
Other than that, we're also dealing with a little situation at our house that's made knitting time a little bit more sparse.
Ouch. It seems you can jump off the couch 999 time without incident, but should you attempt the 1000th jump you'll likely hurt yourself. Aside from one's leg being in a cast being an enormous inconvenience, Parker is actually doing really great. He's a little annoyed by his "Cookie Monster leg" but he's already cruising around on his cast like it isn't that big of a deal. Nothing showed up on the X-ray but since he wouldn't weight bear on his foot, the assumption is that he has a tiny fracture in his growth plate in his ankle. We'll find out if that's the case on Tuesday, but for now- gigantic leg cast. (Also- for future reference, fiberglass casts scratch the crap out of your floors. Boo)
So there you have it- I'm knitting- there's progress, just not a lot of photographic evidence. Happy Easter everyone!
