I'm benign! I finally got my thyroid biopsy results back (the "results" they sent last week weren't actually the results. Good Lord!) But after cursing to (not at) my doctor's office yesterday then actually cursing at the Hospital Administrator.... I was finally able to get the results sent to my doctor. And yes, I know I shouldn't curse at the Administrator but I'd already tried crying and that didn't work so.... Anyway, I got my results and they were good.
I celebrated by doing a little porch knitting.
I'm sure you think I do nothing but porch knit.
You might be right.
I finished the first stocking and started the second. And when I say "finished," I mean I finished the knitting. I'm going to line it with fabric and create a fabric hanger so that it can be stuffed full without sagging out of shape. Of course, I have no idea how to go about creating a lining and I don't even know where my sewing machine is, but those are problems for another day. I've got a month plus to figure it out.
The toe of the red and white striped stocking is a darkish green rather than the black it appears to be. The green and white striped stocking will have a red heel and toe.... except I have to find some red yarn that's the correct weight. Again, it's a problem for another day. Actually, it's probably a problem for tomorrow. But I refuse to worry about it today. I'm too busy celebrating the word benign to worry about anything today.
Another thing I'll have to worry about one day soon, but not today, is my failure to include names on the stockings. Major Oops! I'm thinking I might add some dangly beads, a few jingle bells or a tassel or something to the hanger and include an embroidered felt name tag. Try to make it look like I planned it that way. Your ideas would be most welcome.
Oh hey - something else almost as exciting as the word benign... Hayden got her first tooth this past Sunday.
And her second car.
She's not spoiled rotten or anything. 😊 Actually, she's not. Well, not really. She's just very lucky to have a dad with a best friend with a two year old daughter who likes to pass things down.
