Another Pencil Pouch... And Stitches~ I'm not talking needlework... :(

(*First off I want to say if stitches gross you out, don't look at the second picture in this post.... :)*) This is another pencil pouch I finished for the August Challenge KAL (the last one was for the CAL) It is from the Lion Brand site. (You'll probably have to sign in...) I like how this looks, but man it was a lot of ends to weave in! The pattern said to resist the temptation to work over the ends well I did for the most part except the very first stitch, and it did look warped compared to the other side which was completely straight. Anyway there it is. Now I am trying to finish up a backpack (crocheted). I said I was going to knit one more thing, but I don't know... I guess I committed to it. Maybe I can do something small. I am next in line to do the Gwendolyn doll, though. It should be in the mail right now. Arrrrgh!! Too many pressures to finish too many things all at once.

Okay, if you came this far, then I guess stitches don't gross you out. (Just thought I would give you fair warning...) My husband smashed his finger at work the other day. :( He called me from the doctor. I thought he was just calling me on his way home, he was so calm like nothing was wrong.... Then he said 'Guess where I am?' 'In the driveway? I don't know...' 'At the doctors' 'What happened?' Fortunately nothing worse than this:
He was fortunate it wasn't a lot worse. No broken bones or ligaments/tendons. It is pretty swollen and bruised though. He had five stitches. :( It looks like a "J" doesn't it? My friend said he should have gotten a "T" hee hee.... (First initial of my name...) He is on antibiotics since it was filled with dirt and stuff in the cut. (I won't go into details about that...) I'm glad he didn't hurt himself worse than this. I worry about him hurting himself bad every day. It's on his right hand, so that's good; I guess. (He's left handed...) Well that's all for now folks. Hope you're all having a good day. TTYS! :)

Uh-oh, that could be painful too...but good he is left-handed. Maybe he's quite lucky and he'd be more careful now.

Your knitted pencil pouch is cute...I love the mix of colors :)

Well it wasn't through any error on his part, a rod fell that was supposed to be tied off & it wasn't tied off correctly. But, I am glad he wasn't hurt worse. They had a Safety meeting just about this incident.

Thanks, I think it the pencil pouch is kinda cute myself. I was trying to think of what I could use it for though. Someone on Crochet Mania said it could be a nice make up case. :)

I thought so too, Tina :)
Its good to know that the company takes the incident seriously.
