What to do?

Filed under: General,Knitting — by bethc @ 9:48 pm

What do you do when you have a three-and-a-half hour car ride followed by a four hour visit to the emergency room? Why knit of course… and what does all that knitting get you?

Yes ladies and gentlemen… that is a completed Birch! I can’t believe I knit the whole thing. Tomorrow will be blocking day I hope, and then it’s into the mail to mom. I should be able to get it there less than two months after her birthday. Not too bad for my first lace and really my first major project since rediscovering knitting after a many year hiatus.

Oh, the trip to the ER? That was for B. When we got home from our beah trip he was putting the ice tea and soda back in the fridge and stood up bashing his head into the cabinet door. There was a lot of blood so we decided to err on the side of caution and head to the emergency room. We dropped Bunny with his grandparents and checked in to the emergency room at 10:10pm. At 1:30am the doc declared it a deep scratch/minor laceration. Put some skin glue over it and sent us home shortly after 2 and about 15 minutes after the final stitch of Birch.

I hadn’t allowed myself to work on my socks till I finished Birch so today it was back to sock knitting! I can certainly see why people like sock knitting so much. I really need to invest in a toe-up book… any advice would be great!


  1. Hi Beth. Your Birch Shawl is beautiful! I love the colors. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be sure to update how the towel turns out.

  2. Wow, that is amazing you knit the entire piece … but then, you did have a few hours on your “hands”. Thanks for letting me know the photo was up. Very pretty; your Mom is lucky.
