Know your priorities Part II
I still need clothes, shoes, house stuff, etc., but what I got to spend my money on this week was a new tooth.
One of my teeth decided to crack (I promise I did nothing to help this along - it did it all on its own). The dentist thought I may need a root canal, but we did just a crown instead. Oh, and a crown lengthening, too. I just went and looked that term up on the internet - sometimes too much information is not good before the procedure. I'm glad I didn't know exactly what they were up to in there. I was at the dentist's office 5 hours yesterday.
Even with dental insurance, I'm now much, much poorer.
Per the dentist I may still need the root canal later on - we're waiting to see if the tooth settles down. Maybe I'll sing it lullabys every night.
Rock-a-bye toothie, in the sore gum,
When the Tylenol blows , the toothie will hum
When the crown breaks, the toothie will fall
and out will come toothie, money and all.
Guess it's a good thing that I've got plenty of stash - the yarn/fiber budget just went down the tubes.
Yarn: Lang Jawoll sock yarn (and I never did use that reinforcing yarn they provided)
Color: Bright red (sorry I don't have the number handy)
Needles: Size 2.25mm Brittany Birch double points
Pattern: Kind of my own thing, although I think I got the idea for the leg pattern from a Knitting Vintage Socks pattern - it looks familiar anyway.
And now on to sis-in-law #1's socks. I promised both of the sis-in-laws socks, since they saw the pair I made my father-in-law. (I think it was the way they pleaded that did it.)
This is Socks that Rock in medium weight Nodding Violet. I'm using 2.75mm size 2 Brittany birch dpns and my own pattern.
