It will be very orange – but I like orange — well acutally the color is Tangerine. The yarn is Asland Trends Royal Alpaca and is so incredibly soft and will give the drape the pattern needs.
Now why did I start this earlier today – Friday – when I should have been at work. No I’m not playing hookey – I am playing wounded! I was nearly safe inside the office when I tripped on a square stone tile out front. The annoying thing is I’ve tripped on it before – but have managed not to fall. It’s not like it’s heaved a lot higher than the others but cleary enough that I’ve caught my shoe on it more than once — I’m going to have to change the pattern of where I walk in the front door.
Sooo….. in a feat worth of America’s Funniest Home Videos — I tripped, took three giant steps foward as I tried to catch my balance, thought YIKES I’m going to hit head first on that glass door, managed to sort of get my head turned so my shoulder nudged the door but got my hands down to stop most of my forward momentum by then. Course my knee took a major beating as it hit the pavement and then just to add insult to injury, I had — the key word being HAD — a full tall latte in my hand which as it hit the ground, the lid popped up, the latte soaked the whole left side of me from my glasses down and yes, since I haven’t taken a shower yet – I have some stiff sticky hair on that side of my head! So, when I picked myself up, I hobbled into the office, past the HR office telling her I’m here, I’m going home, sat down at my desk to send an email to the bosses of what happened and I was going home to put my leg up and ice my knee – one boss went and retrieved an ice pack from the first aide cabinet so I had that for the ride home. And what a perfectly good waste of a latte! LOL
So I needed something to keep me busy as I sit, putting the ice bag on my knee, putting it back in the freezer — repeat, repeat, repeat. It’s swollen, it’s going to have one horrendous bruise, but I think it’s sore from the impact and being swollen and not from other major damage — time will tell.
But so much for my sitting and sewing this weekend –I’ll be sitting and knitting with my leg up and a cold pack on it. But it could have been worse!
