Oh goodness, my apologies for the lack of posting but this was a really rough week! Awful weather Monday and Tuesday lead to very trying times out on the boat. (And by “very trying” I mean unbalanced, bruised, nauseous, and soaked through. Not fun.) Wednesday was a crazy-long 14 hour day and then yesterday I pissed off a blue crab and he took his revenge:
That is a very swollen and very sore right index finger. That sucker got me right on the knuckle and wouldn’t let go and by the time I got home my finger was swollen and sore enough that I went to the ER to get it X-rayed. Nothing broken, just sprained, but it is still really really lame. What am I supposed to do without my knitting finger?!

Don’t be distracted by how pretty their colors are. They are more than worthy of my wrath.
Anyway, at least all the time I spent risking my life on the boat this week was good for some knitting (you know, before yesterday):
|STR Lightweight, colorway Lunasea|
My Lunacy! socks are coming along slowly but surely. The pattern, Dusty Corners by Linda Welch, is truly lovely and looks really great with this colorway (if I do say so myself…), although those columns of 1-over-2 cables every other round are a big pain in the butt, but totally worth it.
I hope you’ve all had better weeks than I had… I’ve got a lot of blog reading to catch up on and an exciting weekend planned full of wool, friends, and backyard bar-b-qs so hopefully I’ll have more interesting things to report soon. For now, though, I’m just going to ice my finger and take a nap because this blogger/knitter/scientist/crab-attack-victim needs a friggin’ break!
Sorry about your long week and especially your knitting finger! I hope you find a way to keep knitting anyways, because those socks are so amazing they just need to get done 😀
Haha, thanks! I'm working on it. 🙂
