Edwige Renaudin Design #8 Finca Perle #26 -100 M/C
I cannot believe the damage I did washing dishes. I grabbed a newly-sharpened knife hiding under the soap bubbles; it felt as if I had cut into a cucumber - only it was stinging big time!
When I had a look, I wondered if I needed some stitches and also worried that the cut was not only deep, but in the underside of the thumb joint. Ohhhh.
Well, having been a stained-glass artist, in another life, and nearly severing the other thumb and treating it myself, I have the knack of figuring if I can deal with a bad blunder on my own, so off to the medicine chest I trotted, holding the thumb aloft, squeezing like mad.
Today, three days after, it is much better. It never did slow me down, surprisingly enough, and I completed the Edwige Renaudin pattern above, over the weekend. : )
The injury might have been the reason I could not concentrate on the Honey Napkin, however. I had to cut out... wait for it... about 12 repeats, not only once, but twice!
I kept omitting the same ring, over and over. Finally I admitted defeat, put it aside and entertained Mr. G. instead, who worked wonders with HIS tatting thread!
***For cat-lovers: do not worry! I monitor his play-time with thread bits, and do not leave Mr. G in their company unattended! : )
