I've been working on my husband's sweater hammer and tongs since I got done with my socks. Last evening I was checking in on my mother in law and noticed a piece of skin hanging off the end of my thumb. I didn't think anything about it since the yarn I'm using has dried out my hands quite a bit and I'm unwilling to use lotion and having it transfer to the yarn.
I picked off the skin and was immediately met with abject pain and suffering. It took a good deal of my thumb with it. I'd managed to wear a nice blister where I control my stitches. I've never had that happen, ever.
So, I could not knit with this open abrasion on my thumb and put a bandaid on it until I get up to the office supply store and get one of those plastic deals that tellers use when counting money.
Ouch! I think I deserve a brownie.
