Rippit, Rippit, and More Toe Woes
The fair demo was fun as always. I managed to spin 2 full bobbins plus part of a third between the Friday night and Saturday morning/afternoon demos. The splint didn't slow me down at all. I think it did cause a bit of friction with my foot when I had the sandals on though. I also stuck to my diet most of the time. I had a Taco salad and sugar free ice cream for Friday. Dunkin Donuts breakfast burrito for breakfast and Fried clam strips and fries (which I didn't eat all of) were for Saturday. I drank plenty of ice water too.
Pat and I had gone out to do some errands on Sunday and when we got home, I took the sandals off so I could put my feet up for a bit. I noticed something stuck to my big toe. What I thought was a piece of paper was a piece of skin from a blister that had broken. It was already dry and healing. I never felt it. This is scary since I'm diabetic. With the exception of a trip to Weight Watchers and the drugstore the following Monday, I never left the house until last Saturday. I spent the week in my slippers or with the foot exposed to air to help it heal faster. Thankfully, it's fine now.
Due to all the foot issues, I didn't spin. There was only 380 yards to go on my sweater yarn. I'll finish it this weekend. Instead, I knit almost all my Buttercup top. Then, I tried it on. Fail!! It's way too big. When I tried it on the first time, after separating for the sleeves it looked fine. I had added some extra stitches under the arm part of the body since I usually have a problem with snugness in that area. So, off to the frog pond it went this morning. I ripped it back to where I had separated for the sleeves, took out the extra stitches, and am now re-knitting the stockinette body. About 1/4 of it is already back in. There's no way I can finish before the end of the month for the Twisted Strandss KAL, but I will be wearing the darn thing this summer!
