7 root canal's and the crowns later....................
and I produced an adorable hat LOL........I'm feeling a bit under the weather today and (yesterday and Saturday LOL) PLUS I had a 6 hour surgery on Saturday, it was supposed to be 8 but they stopped at 6!! Thank GAWD!
I had what we THOUGHT was an abscess tooth, turned out to be several and some other problems OY VEY :( They needed to operate and do it NOW so my doctor did it on Saturday, his and the scrub nurses day off. I think that was so great! He is really a great doctor and VERY competent.
Anyways, to spare ya'll the details, it was alot worse than anyone knew and because I have a heart problem it kind of complicated things a bit...long story short, I had 7 root canals done but one of them is still open to drain ....YUCK!!!!! My face is swollen like a chipmunk and this is the first I have felt like typing. I miss my friends and I wanted to see what all of you are up to so here I am.
Friday I did however finish this cute hat from the Itsy Bitsy hat book. ...I didn't have the right colors the pattern called for and truthfully, I am way to cheap to go out and buy it LOL so I thought I would just use up what I have. I had originally purchased 6 skeins of cotton for a particular hat in that book but when I started to get ready to knit the hat and I REALLY examined it, I wasn't pleased with it and realized it just wasn't going to be my "style" of hat to make........NOW I was stuck with 6 skeins of cotton yarn and not sure what to do with it, well, DUH, make another hat out of the book silly!!! so I picked out this one and 2 others, actually, if truth be told, there are only maybe 2-3 hats that I DON'T plan on making out of it. I like the book, it is cute and clever. Alot of the hats are the same basic hat but with top embelishments ect., right up my alley. I can embellish and make it totally different and I just love that. I can get creative by using the books ideas and patterns. Personally, I LOVE the book and HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. It kind of looks like a strawberry to me but oh well. The yarn is Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Co. and ya know what.....I like it. I am finding more and more yarns that I like that are not wool. I was such a wool snob LOL. I would have bet money I would ONLY like wool, well, nope, I like a few other things LOL.
Now here is the little Miss Princess who will be sporting that "strawberry/flower hat" LOL...and yup, she LOVES it!!
Have a happy knitting week everyone.
