Part of my youthful appearance is the fact that my naturally round face has very few wrinkles thanks to the extra weight I carry. Part of it is in my genetics; all the women from my Mom's side of the family look 10-15 years younger than they are. Part of it is that I dye my hair. No shame there, it's my nod to vanity.
When appraised of exactly what portion of my 30s I'm in, and how many children I've had suddenly my arm is healing at a reasonable rate. I wonder if I explain that I'm going through early menopause and that my nerves (which were severed 3 years ago now) have come back alive, if he'd realize exactly how amazing the recovery is.
So, two more weeks in the cast. I can live with it. Since the cast completely changes my knitting tension, anything I start now must be able to be finished within 2 weeks. HAHAHA. Yeah, right? I did finish the silk shawl I posted about earlier. It now looks something like this:

I've also been working on these:
I have 3 spring patterns in the works: 2 stoles and another triangle. I know, I just like working triangles. They're flattering to wear, and I find being able to see visible progress very satisfying when knitting. I'm tentatively planning them in these yarns:
|silk, kid mohair and silk, cotton and silk... hmmm tend?|
Finally, I leave you with one of my favorite projects being appreciated by one of my other favorite projects.
