My current work in progress:

Corrugated Shawl, designed by Cecelia Campochiaro, knit from Crave Caravan in the Tilly colorway, using U.S. size 4 needles.

Another knit-free day. The sock-in-progress sits sadly by itself:

I had half a root canal procedure today. I have to wait til the infection in the tooth is gone (ew) before it can be completed. I’ve got penicillin and pain killers. And an appointment for the rest of the fun a week from Friday. But it feels better already.

Two months ago I got a mouthguard because I had started clenching my teeth. Um, alot. But apparently I had already cracked the poor tooth, so this has been building up for a while, despite my using the mouthguard every night since I got it.

On the way home from the dentist, I noticed my odometer:

My car is 5.25 years old and has 12,000 miles on it. Yep, I don’t drive much!

And apparently care and feeding of the blog is foremost in my mind. I was de-numbing from novocaine, aching from the procedure, drooling slightly, with the beginning of a shooting pain up into the right eye, yet I was keeping an eye on the odometer so I could snap a pic for the blog.
