Numerical Knitting

Enough already…

I have seen far too many of these lately.
That is, the inside of medical examining rooms. A week ago it was me, for a minor infection, then Saturday night for B with a cut on his head, and finally yesterday for Bunny. Yep, we now have “baby’s first stitches.” He was playing and slipped, falling onto the cutting edge of a packing tape dispenser… there was a lot of blood and of course it was two minutes after the pediatrician’s office closed. Not interested in another trip to the ER this week, I found an urgent care center and off we went. Now Bunny is the proud owner of 3 stitches in his pinkie finger and we have to figure out how to make sure it stays dry!

Before that excitement I had a chance to do a final photo shoot with Birch. Here it is on a bush in the front yard

and also a close up for those who are interested in such things. It is now wrapped and winging it’s way to my mom. I took it to UPS because it was near Jo-Ann’s Fabrics (Sugar’n Cream) and they asked if I wanted to send it ground. I said sure and they said it would arrive tomorrow (overnight) I asked how long air would take and the guy, without blinking, said “overnight.” It wasn’t till I asked how much more that would cost that he realized it was the same amount of time…



After all my excitement about winning I am working on a blog contest of my own, stay tuned!


  1. Pretty lace work … looks airey. Nice color as well.

    So sorry about your baby’s little finger … good luck on keeping it dry.

  2. Congratulations on Birch! It looks wonderful; I especially liked the photo with your surprise model! Hoping that you will not be making any more medically related trips in the near future.

  4. The poor guy. I hope it heals up quickly. It must be hard to do things with a stitched up pinky.

    Birch looks wonderful. I’m sure your mom is going to treasure it.

    It was nice seeing you last night!
