A post

Today I am not at "Beanswallows" and have s bit of running around to do. My spoilee's kit is almost finished. There is an item I ordered that is taking its sweet time getting here. I am very pleased with her bag, found a great deal on a yarn/pattern set that exactly fits her very special needs.

There are also a couple of RAOK hitting the skies today!

In the meantime, I'm pretty sure I will be able to make it to the magical island to visit with Quinn and the crew (or should it be cru?) the last weekend of April.

Just a post. Nothing really new.

Thanks for all the well wishes. My wrists are doing much better. My business partner worked especially hard this week to give me some extra time off - which is both appreciated and frustrating. For once I have spare time and I can't knit! Agh! I have been knitting for just a few minutes at a time, being careful not to overdo it.

Also got a great haircut this week, along with a new colorway. Dark chocolate brown underneath and a very hot red on top.

I've picked up a thing or two for my spoilee's kit this week. Am making a trip to a LYS today on her behalf and am pretty sure I can get this out in the "early send" window to make extra points for THE house.

In the infirmory

Both hands in braces. Tendonitis has run amok. No knitting. No chopping. No lifting. One finger typing. Have been dictating my real life "Beanswallow's" blog to the staff. You can check it out here.
