Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Sock-wise, Go Bess Go!

Eye-wise, may BD's healing be swift and uncomplicated.

Birthday-wise, may BD have a great one!

And Happy Easter to you both. :-)

We've been in Richmond for 2 days while BD had cataract surgery. This is the last of the eye procedures he was scheduled for after all the retina surgery from last summer. It turns out that the more his eye got manipulated last summer, the more that cataract grew. He also had developed some pressure in the eye and was taking glaucoma meds, so they planned to put a valve in to relieve that. He had to wait till that poor eye had had some R&R before he could have this surgery and then he needed both doctors to be on hand to take care of it. But the day finally came.

Mechanically, everything went well, and since BD has the most sober of cataract doctors, and since he smiled when he checked BD over on Wednesday, we feel confident things are good and will progress well. We go back again on Friday for More Checkups and his schedule of treatment will be determined at each visit because his was not the usual cataract procedure. But it is done and we are glad and so grateful. I know a lot of you have been rooting for us and I'm mighty thankful for your support.

Of course, there is nothing like waiting in doctor's offices for cranking out Birthday Socks for Himself. I made these socks a wee bit wider than I usually do so I was worried I might run out of yarn. I couldn't tell if this was a partial skein or a full one - it had been dug from the stash. In order to knit them in relaxed pleasure instead of anxious worry about running out of yarn, I knit the heels and toes in a slightly thicker Regia solid navy blue. I also knit an afterthought heel in hope filled determination that if/when those heels begin to wear they'll be easy to replace.
Still a lot of #2 sock to knit, since I spent half of last week knitting with the B.U. yarn, but I have till the 31st to finish these.
