Holy Crap!

Went back today to have the other half of my mouth lasered. Two weeks ago when they did the first half I didn't have time to sit in the waiting room and get nervous. Today he was running a half hour late so I had plenty of time to think things over while knitting on the Opal zebra socks. By the time I hit the chair I was shaking like a leaf. Now I'm in some serious discomfort which hopefully will pass in a couple days. I think he did the easier side first so I wouldn't be afraid to come back.

I finished a couple elephant wash cloths. Will try to get a pic up in a couple days. I casted on a dolphin washcloth to work on when I'm on conference calls. Also almost finished with my shawl. I figured I'd knit to about 56" and it should block out to around 64". Think I'm going to invest in some blocking wires this time around.

Keeping in the "what the hell .... let's cast on something else" mode of knitting I decided make another shawl using the shades of pink/purple knitpicks yarn I got last week. I picked out Wendy's Fir Cone Wrap. I got thru one repeat and just wasn't feeling it. Maybe I'll try it again on bigger needles to give it a more open look.

Hope you start feeling better soon.
I've been avoiding the dentist like the plague. I still have the upper and lower right side that needs work. I know I'm going to have to go in soon.

OH, Geez...doesn't sound fun at all! I guess the only good thing is that it's over!

Take care, soft foods!

The dentist is the torture for the 21st century! I get so nervous when I have to get a filling - they suggested I take a vallium next time! Ha!
