On the DL

The FoUI has this funny T-Shirt (well, he has lots but I'm talking about a specific one), I'm sure anyone reading this has probably seen someone in the same one. It says "I do all my own stunts" with a stick figure stunt man.

I should have been wearing that t-shirt Monday. The dog took off running and pulled me right over in a classic TV face first fall from an upright position (I bet there's a shorter name for that) on the way home from school and knitting is now in abeyance for the nonce. My left hand is still a bit swollen but there's nothing actually broken (according to the PA at Urgent Care anyway). I suspect a torn ligament at least though from what hurts and how much. It could have been a lot worse though. Only it has made me realize just how addicted to knitting I've gotten. Now that I can't do any. Whine. Grumble.

I'm getting better pretty fast and I hope to move to Injured Reserve soon. Certainly being on the DL hasn't kept me from shopping for yarn. It might even be good for the state of my Ravelry profile if I were to lay off the knitting a bit longer and enter some of those zillions of stash photos I took last fall into Ravelry. That's much easier to do one handed than knitting is.

Oh, that's terrible! I'm impressed that you're typing. I hope you soon make a full recovery!

Sorry to hear about it. But it is called a "face plant" because you plant your face on the ground :o) hope there wasn't much damage!

Oh, my! I hope you heal quickly... that is just no fun!

P.S. Thanks so much for donating the beautiful Schaefer Lola prize yarn for Cattywampus' Heifer contest - I love it!
