P.S. About My Hand Progress

After returning from vacation, I had to go for a check-up for my hand. Well, I ended up seeing a different doctor.....someone completely new to the burn trauma group that I had been seeing. Anyway, she comes in & introduces herself, etc., then she starts looking through my chart & she keeps getting a very puzzled look on her face. She scans through my chart again & she still has this perplexed expression. Finally, she says, "Do you mind if I ask you a question?"

What am I supposed to say? No? That sort of defeats the purpose of going there in the first place, so of course, I say, "Sure."

May I ask, "Why didn't you have rehab? Why didn't you ever go to rehab? Why wasn't it ever recommended?"

Well, she asked me 3 questions, but who's counting? I just smiled & pulled my knitting out of my purse. Enough said.

Back from Vacation

I'm back from vacation. We went to Altoona to visit my DH's side of the family. It was a wonderful visit & it was also a time of reassuring family that I'm recovering from my burn injuries that I had sustained while visiting them on Christmas Eve.

Here's my hand that's healed.



Here's my hand with the pressure glove that I will be wearing until February. I can't wait to wear my "Mother" birthstone ring again!


On the knitting front, we went to Wally-World & found some Peaches & Creme cotton yarn for some dishcloths in different colors that I haven't been able to find here at home. I made about 4 dishcloths, but I don't have too many pics to show, because I forgot my camera & the dishcloths got new owners almost as soon as they came off the needles!

Here's some photos of a couple of dishcloths that I did manage to keep for myself. I'm on a feather & fan kick. It's so easy to memorize.


And, here's some other yarn that I had used. Mt SIL got that dishcloth. It's called "Festive" by P&C.
