Yes, I have actually started my Christmas 2011 knitting and crafting. I am hoping to give more hand made gifts this year than ever before. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal photos of those projects because, as I found out last week, my family reads my blog from time to time. However, here are photos of the socks that I started on the way to the festival last week. These are most likely for me and you can find more details on my Ravelry page.
Both pair are now at the turn heel stage. So, I should have two new pair of socks to show in a couple of weeks. Also, I was selected to test knit these socks. Aren’t they a gas? Of course, I had to order yarn to make them…gotta love stash enhancement!
On the health front, I went to the oral surgeon to see about the third tooth extraction and he does not want to do the procedure until I have blood work done to make sure my platelet count is high enough. This liver thing is a PITA! I have had two teeth extracted in the last two weeks and have had no complications. Because this guy is a surgeon and not a dentist, he wants to “make sure” (read: legally cover his rear) when it comes to my “procedure” (read: pulling a tooth). I can understand completely, but HATE having blood drawn… Anyway, after the tooth is removed, I will finally have a partial, something that has been a long time coming.

VERY cool socks, Deb!
As for the blood draw…OMG, be glad he’s doing that. I’ve been there when someone (resident) blew it off and we had an oozing bloody mess that would not stop until we gave FFP. A blood draw is not as bad as novocaine and extraction. I know you’ll be glad when this dental work is all done though.
Deb – I love seeing your new projects. I hope that I will be able to do hand made gifts for Christmas too!! I am sorry about you having to have more blood work. I used to literally hyperventilate when it was time for them to stick me. In the last two years I’ve had so much blood work done that i’m almost numb to it now. I will be praying for you! Looking forward to seeing you soon.
