Not breaking any hips yet...

I slipped on some stairs in the mall yesterday. Slid down several on my heels and then on my butt and legs. Wrenched my left arm backwards. No broken bones. I guess I'm not that old yet (i.e. no broken hip) but definately not graceful.

So, for today, my 37th birthday, I have some lovely bruises. Happy old-lady birthday to me...

I finished the first sock from the Annetrelac socks (Interweave Knits Holiday). Knit in Patons Kroy Krazy Stripes. I really like this sock, it knit up pretty quickly and entrelac in the round was fun to learn. When I tried it on (before it was finished) all I could think was "It's a good thing I'm not self conscious about my ankles." It's like a down vest for the ankle!

I have a few other items in the works. I should get in the habit of taking in-progress pics... Not today though. Today I'll try to get as much done with as little stress as possible at work, then The Boy is taking me out for my birthday (not sure what the plan is).


  1. Happy birthday! Sorry to hear about your fall!

  2. Happy birthday! I hope the bruises heal quickly.

  3. Happy (totally and completely belated) birthday. Those socks = love!

  4. Happy Belated birthday from one old lady to another. ;))You may not be able to walk but you sure can knit a cool pair of socks.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday from me too. Sorry about the fall - I slip down the stairs at home all the time, I think that means it is time for the landlord to replace the carpet (he won't but one can always wish).

  6. I hope you had a great birthday! The sock is so pretty and cheerful. I love it!

  7. Oh, my! I hope your all better now - and belated happy birthday! The sock is very cool : )
