It has become very apparent to me that my family & I are in desperate need of a vacation. Yesterday was one big, messy day and we were all a bit frazzled. The boys have one more week of school before March break so there’s lots of end-of-term happenings. Steve is prepping to head to Stitches West and I am still/back on crutches. We’re all moving in a million directions and not very gracefully.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am no longer a 16 year old athlete capable of bouncing back from injuries (or lose 5 lbs) in the blink of an eye. The reality that we’ll be heading out on vacation (thankfully) in just a couple of weeks and the thought of my foot not being healed has hit home. At the moment, the only shoes I can wear are my Ugg-a-like winter books. As cute and comfy as they are – sporting them in Florida is not my idea of a fashion statement. So I am all about ice, elevate, repeat. My foot will be healed. I will be able to get a pedicure and wear flip flops. I will.
So in the craziness of yesterday, I never had a chance to post our Thursday FREE Pattern. This week we’re featuring the Purple Maze Messenger Bag, Valley Yarns Pattern #141:
It’s knit in Valley Yarns Amherst and is a great bag. Normally $3.99/ball, we’ve put Amherst on sale this week at $2.89/ball.
How’s the Olympic Knitting coming along? I’ve slowed. Need to cast-on the second hat tonight.
