What's going on.

Nothing. Nothing fibery, anyway.
This is my left index finger. Last weekend I cut it nearly to the bone with a bread knife. (The sucky part was feeling the serrations go through.) Since the husbeast keeps the knives fucking sharp around here, minor cuts are kind of rare. It is healing fine and there doesn't seem to be any permanent damage, but I've got to keep a bandage on it to keep dirt out of it. The bandages make things awkward.

It turns out that I use my left index finger for a lot more than I'd have thought. Since I knit continental, I need it to carry yarn, WITHOUT snagging on anything like, oh, a bandage. So no knitting. And drafting fiber? Forget it. Ever gotten fiber stuck in a bandaid? NOT VERY ATTRACTIVE. And I'm not going to ATTEMPT plying.

So, I started writing a novel. What the hell. We'll see how it goes. At the least, I've not gone bonkers in five whole days without knitting. That's something.

Oh, the bandaid? Curious George. I switch off between that and Hello Kitty. I haven't touched the Tinkerbell bandages. The Goober would have a fit.

In other news, Sekhmet is a fucker.
The Goober took that picture. Not bad, huh?

That cat hasn't even begun to show you her talents!

That's an excellent picture. (And if it had been LOLcats!)

One of the perks of having kids is fun bandaids.

Looks like Sekhmet is also writing a novel. You could use this time to learn to knit English. It would be slow and awkward, but at least you could knit.

I used to have a screen saver called rat race with rats running around a track. My kids used to think they were playing a read game - they loved it. From his concentration, I'd say the C-A-T would love it too.

I spelled it so he wouldn't know we were talking about him.

better than bandaids, and so much joke potential
