Three Knits That Are Not Going Anywhere

For today's Three on Thursday, I am sharing three knitting projects that are going nowhere fast.


This is my Weekender sweater in progress, which I am actually calling The Neverender.  I have thoughts about this project, which I will share at another time (see below).


Next up, my Tart shawl in progress.  This one is enjoyable to knit.


And last but not least, my 1st Down Socks, in a colorway called Fly, Eagles Fly!

Why are these going nowhere?  Because I have not been able to knit at all, period.  Approximately an hour after hitting the publish button on my last post, I was walking Hamlet and not watching where I was walking, and I tripped.  I broke two teeth, and my right wrist.  I had surgery on my wrist last Friday, and am headed to the dentist's office in 10 minutes.  Until yesterday, I had a hard time with just about everything.  I go back to see the surgeon on Monday, to a) see how/if things are healing, and b) if I can return to work.

Yep, life has been a treat lately.  One-handed typing is the least of my problems, but so annoying, it's why this is all I'll probably have to say for a bit.

 As my mother used to say, it's either an ass or an elbow ...

Oh no! Healing vibes being sent your way. I've tripped/slipped and fallen too many times in my life. Hope you heal quickly.

oh no Bridget. I am so so sorry! Breaking two teeth is no fun at all. I had never heard your mom's saying. It is kind of funny .....
Hope you can knit again very very soon. Maybe it is a good time to browse on ravelry and pinterest for ideas and dreaming

I've been thinking of you, Bridget . . . ever since I saw the sad picture of your injured wrist on Instagram. Here's to quick mending -- so you can be back to those projects ASAP. XOXO

I'm so very sorry to hear this; it all sucks. I hope surgery got the bones in place, you are feeling better, get your teeth taken care of, and that you get as much time off as you need. I'm sending good thoughts for pain-free healing and that things get a bit easier every day.

Oh my goodness! As my grandmother used to say you went "ass over tea kettles!"

That's quite the fall. I've been lucky in my last few falls, I've only ended up with badly skinned knees.

I hope your recovery goes smoothly and you can knit again soon!

Oh Bridget, I am so sorry about the fall. Bless your heart, your arm and your teeth too. Get well my friend. Hope the dentist appointment went well.

Oh yikes Bridget! Hoping the dentist appointment went well and that you are now speedily healing.

Oh no! Sending you huge cups of tea & gentle hugs!

Oh Bridget! I hope that you'll get some good news from the doc and the dentist. Sending healing thoughts your way and a shoulder for a good cry if you need it!

Oh no! I'm just catching up on blog reading and... hope you're feeling better. I'm not sure which would be worse - the broken teeth or the wrist. Oh, I'm so sorry for you and wish you a speedy recovery.
