War Wounds

Saturday my hand was super-duper sore. The bites were infected, of course, which is pretty common, so I was told, with cat bites. Today, however it's a lot better. It's still sore, and I have to watch what I do, but the redness is gone. It's still swollen a bit. I was able to knit a bit last night on my cardigan. Thought I'd stick with that as it's on circular needles, nothing to poke into my hand. I had to take frequent breaks, though, as my hand got sore and lame. I haven't knit any yet today, but I think I'll tinker a bit shortly and see how it goes.

The other day I was puttering around on the Bernat and Patons sites and saw that there were some new colorways in Kroy and Handicrafter Twists (which have been added to my next order which will hopefully go this week or next). So I did some more looking today at work to see if there was anything else new. Much to my surprise I found out that Bernat has discontinued their Jr. Jacquards, along with Camouflage and Baby Boucle. (More, too, but we ony carried these three.) They have also made four new Baby Jacquards colorways (which I will be ordering as well). And Kroy has discontinued some colorways including mercury, country jacquard, paint box, norfolk blue, and bronzed berry stripes. So all of these discontinued yarns and colorways have been marked down by about 25% since all we have is what is in stock, and we can't get any more. (Good time if anyone was looking to make any of these blankets! Or one of these.)
Happy knitting!

Wow! Kitty got you good. I mostly have to deal with scratches (and they've given me some good ones) but when they have bit me they've never broken the skin.
