I had the mitten in my lap -- finally finished the cuff and did the braid (oops, had to rip that back once and re-do). Man, that braid is so cool. I goofed up on the foundation row for the hand, so there's a row waiting to be tinked tonight. The mitten in the book was knit with red and purple yarn and the chart is red and blue, but I'm knitting red and white and what's red in the chart is what I'm knitting white -- yeah. It's a nice, colorful book, but I really think generic black and white charts would have been easier for people who are not knitting exactly as shown. I'll try to take a pic tonight to show the cuff striping with and without Meg's Jogless Jog.
I had my visit with the dentist yesterday. I'll be going back next week and two weeks after that for a crown over the broken tooth and extensive cleaning. I was happily surprised that the crown was one (the longest lasting and most expensive) of three options she gave me. She did not say the dreaded words "root canal"; instead, she said the other dreaded words, "periodontal disease." I have never had a root canal (knocking on wood), but every time DH has a tooth problem, that's how it seems to end. Along with my new toothbrush, she gave me a Reach Access flosser -- I have a small mouth and tight, crooked teeth; of course, I've always known that flossing is important, but it's a HUGE pain in the butt so a rare occurrence. I know that's bad.
Next up, new lenses for my glasses -- after I pay for all the dental junk. My current pair, the first with no-line bifocals, are only a year old. My last two pairs of glasses had non-scratch coating and for some reason on these, the most expensive by far, they neglected to do so and they are bad, really bad. I've had thoughts of laser vision correction; if I only knew about the long-term.
