Yup- broken finger, dislocated joint-needed two ring nerve blocks to get the damn thing straight again . Soooo- it appears that my hopes of getting my amazing sweater done for the big night (Thursday) are right down the tubes. And how did this happen? First, you take one giant Poodle Head. Add a smidge of spring fever and a tendency to bolt when scared. Now throw in a neighbour's Soft Coated Wheaton (same age as Bear). I dropped his lead because he was getting frisky. When I bent to pick it up, I had just caught my ring finger in the loop and he bolted. Caught my finger and pulled. I even heard the snap. When I looked down at my finger , my fingernail was facing my middle finger!!!!!! "Oh man. This can't be good," I remember thinking. I figured I was in shock, so I tried to straighten it a bit. Yeah. Dumb.
Anyhow- 4 to 6 weeks like this. No knitting for awhile. I tried, mind you, but I was awkward, and it hurt.
Now I have to go shopping to try to sort out my wardrobe dilemma for Thursday.
Onto other news- I saw my chair over at Chapters-it was way cool. I also met the husband of the chair of "The Chair Affair", and he wanted to know more about the chair, and implied that if his wife wanted the chair, so be it. What a sweetheart.
And so it goes...........................................................
PS- Bear actually seems to feel bad! He snuggles and tries to put his big furry head on my shoulder. He has sniffed my finger at least a dozen times, and then looks at me with those great big eyes. I know- he's a dog. But I think he "gets" it.
