I know, I haven't posted in a week, and I'm sorry. Yeah, yeah, broken record much? I hear ya. But read on, gentle.... uh.... reader. You'll see I had a good reason.
So, last time we spoke I regaled you with the tale of my incredible athletic achievement at the 10km race of the Montreal Marathon.
Next day I had choir practice (oh yeah, I decided not to quit choir after all), but hey, I've never been a once-a-day blogger, right? And Tuesday..... well, Tuesday the fit really hit the shan.
As we were sitting down to dinner, Phil was moving a flower vase out of the way on the dining room table when it broke in his hand and cut his left ring finger very badly. Very, very badly. We had to take him to the emergency room right away, it was bleeding so much.
The kids were pretty freaked out, heck... I was pretty freaked out! It was a bit scary. Anyway, they stitched him up for now, but it looks as though he has tendon and/or nerve damage, so he's got an appointment with a plastic surgeon on Tuesday. *Sigh*
Tuesday wasn't all bad, of course. I mean... Little Miss Enabler was born on Tuesday!!! and you know what that means... I can FINALLY tell you about the garment I knit for her.
I knit her the Helena cardigan, using sumptuous Tanis Fiber Arts DK weight yarn in the Jewel colourway. I really like knitting cardis for babies, and this one was a really fun, enjoyable knit with a special details that really made the outfit precious.
I had plenty of yarn leftover (sadly, not enough to knit MYSELF a matching cardigan), so I decided on a whim to knit a little hat to go with it (y'all remember how THAT turned out).
I got to meet the Little Miss this afternoon (her name is Bronwyn Evangeline, a bit of a mouthful for my francophone children - and husband!), and I can just tell it's going to look fabulous on her.
I've got lots more to share with you all, but I'm going to call it quits for tonight. It's been a bit of a DORMA day, and I'm knackered.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
