Validation!

Yesterday I read on Twitter that the bridge between here and the gym was totally backed up with emergency road repair at the time I would have been trying to get home had I gone swimming as usual. Then this morning, one of my swim buddies told me that they front desk person did not show up to open the gym until 8:15. An angry mob had collected by that time. Ugh. Been there and it's ugly.

So... my decision not to swim yesterday? Brilliant!

Today I was worried about swimming with my hand wounds. I doubled down on the binding - And, can I just say thank you to the genius who invented the self adhering stretchy tape??? It's so effective and easy and nice to my skin. Thank you - and then put my neoprene glove over it all.

First test, will it hurt. It felt weird for the first lap but it didn't hurt and then I pretty much forgot about it. When I got home, I peeled off the bandages and, honestly, I think all that time in the water helped it!!

It doesn't even look disgusting any more. That's some fast healing right there.

It's now back covered in antiseptic gel and bandaged back up. It still doesn't hurt. I must not have any hand nerves left at all. Fine by me.

I spent last night watching 2 episodes of Season 3 of Line of Duty. That show is just amazing. I literally gasp out loud. I still have one episode left and then six in Season 4 and Season 5 is being made right now. TV goodness for sure.

Today's project is more of the geometric pattern working. I organized my notes from the coat and then worked them out for a top (not cardigan). I have 2 yards of a fun fleece to use for pattern validation. On paper, I should have plenty of fabric to do the job. But 2 yards for a long sleeve tunic length top? I need to do to believe.

I'm on it. Watch this space.
