Feeling old

Apparently I pulled some muscles in my lower back over the weekend – most likely from loading and unloading the truck for the street fair, lifting totes of soap. And the tent. And the tables. Gah, back pain makes a body feel old! I’ve got an appointment with a back cracker today, who will hopefully tell me I need several insurance-covered massages (hint hint, doc).

On a good note, I was able to knit a bit last night! As I sat in my recliner whining about my back, I managed several rounds on my Temperature Scarf. My finger isn’t entirely healed, but it is getting there. I’ve got almost full mobility in it again, so I can tension my yarn fairly well. Not well enough that I’d risk picking up a more complicated WIP quite yet, but the simple stockinette seemed doable. So that’s a good thing.

I am behind on my Temperature Scarf — it suffered a major setback when I ran out of two colors, and KnitPicks no longer carries the same shades. I got the closest substitutes, but wasn’t loving them… Last night I figured I’d better just go with it and get the doggone thing done already.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.

    I hear you on the pinkie finger. I popped the middle knuckle on my sister’s house door two weeks ago, and then popped it again on my on house door last week! It’s just now getting to a less sore state where I can comfortable wrap my yarn. Hope your finger continues to get better.
