I did however remain optimistic that I will heal and made a few purchases:
The marled yarn on the left is for a sweater for me. Well it was... only when I impulsively switched colors before I paid, I switched yarns and now have the wrong gauge. So will be finding a new project for this one!
The blue Vintage is for the Pembroke vest for my 18 month old nephew.
The Colrain on the right is for a vest pattern I found... green for my mom and burgundy for me!
Now just to wait 'til I can actually cast on...
