Splish, Splash the mittens are takin a bath!

Splish splash, the mittens where taking a bath
Long about a Saturday morn

Splish, Splash mittens are takin a bath!

A rub dub, just relaxing in the tub
Thinking everything was alright!!!

Sorry! I couldn’t help myself with the cheesiness of the song reference… at least I refrained from embedding a song to this post! (Those drive me insane!!) I finished the thumb on my second fiddlehead this morning, and started them blocking. I can’t wait for them to dry so I can start the linning. I’ve been thinking of all the choices I have in my stash and am thinking of using this yarn
Posh yarn Coquet
over the kidsilk haze I have. I think the mohair will get stuck to my fingers and while I have been working on these mittens for 2 weeks now my hands kinda tingle from the mohair in the one yarn. Anywhoo… Check out the multitude of sins a good blocking will hide
blocked and unblocked
you might have to click on the photo to go to a larger picture. Its amazing, the mitten I blocked falls right off my hand and the unblocked one is pretty snug.

I want to thank all of you guys again for your thoughts and prayers. I got a phone call from my Dr’s office yesterday. The pharmacist at the hospital was going through the ER records and saw that no one told me to stop taking the cipro. And the pharmacist knew that the numbness is a side effect of the cipro. I’m so glad I listened to my gut and didn’t take anymore! But I can’t believe the nurse told me to finish it when I asked her if I should. (I just wanted to hear what she would say when I asked.) and the Dr never told me that he suspected that it might be the antibiotic (I know he did because he told a Dr that is friends with my Dad.) I had an MRI on Friday, I told the receptionist what had happened and that I was in the ER. She was a sweetie and put me in one of the appointment slots they have to keep open for inpatients. Which is a good thing, if I hadn’t have told her my appointment would be on Thursday the 11! Hopefully my Dr’s office will have those results on Monday. All the weird numbness was completely gone by Friday afternoon. I can’t wait till I get my survey in the mail for my ER visit. I have a book to right. And I can’t wait to get the survey for my MRI I have a slew of complements for those girls, they where wonderful! I’m so glad it was just a reaction to the antibiotic, but I better not get sick again anytime soon! Sheesh! Thanks again to all of you guys, ((hugs)) I can’t tell you how wonderful ya’ll are.

  2. The mittens turned out really cute! I love the colors 🙂

    BTW, I’ve had an allergic reaction to medication before and it is really not fun. You can’t help but get panicy. I’m glad you are doing better!

  3. Hy Amanda,
    I’m so glad that you’re doing a LOT better! Hope there will be no repetition of all of this at ANY time!
    All the best from Switzerland

  4. So glad you feel better! Antibiotics can really suck – I had burns in my face from antibiotics once because it made my skin more sensitive to sun light (I’m blond, fair skinned and allergic to too much sun light already), plus I went skiing.

    The mittens are really beautiful!

  5. I always tell others to go with there gut feeling. Good thing you did. I sure am glad that you are feeling better! They need to write that on your record that you can’t take that stuff and you’ll have to remind them every time you go someplace to get meds. Just glad you are okay!
