Just a Quick Post

What a day! It started out just fine. I started a new (small, quick) little project.

The pattern is Barb’s Koigu Ruffle, from Churchmouse Classics. The yarn is… Koigu. You never would have guessed that, would you? I’ve been working on it off and on today and it’s making good progress. As it is right now, I’m over half way on it. Basically, it’s two ruffles with a straight piece in the middle. I’ll post pictures of the finished scarf when it’s done.

As I said at the beginning, the day started out just fine. Then, this…

… did this…

Man, did that hurt!!! I was helping John figure out how best to close in the stairs that go upstairs so that we could have some covered storage space (my dad was a carpenter; I learned a few things). We had it closed with cardboard but, with the first rain, it sort of disintegrated. I was pointing out how to put in the last piece of plywood, turned around to go back into the house and walked, full force, into that little shelf.

I only hope I don’t wake up with a black eye.

    Ouch!!! Looks like you need a cold pack and some Advil. Take it easy.

  2. Definitely Ouch! I recommend Arnica cream for the bruising. Hope it goes away quickly.

  3. Oh no! I bet that hurt! Hopefully you woke up this morning minus a black eye.

  4. OUCH, that had to hurt. I'm glad you are ok.

  5. Oh, Ev! That looks like something I would do. "Remember the shelf; remember the shelf; remember the shelf..." THWAK!!!

    Hope it heals quickly!
