Knit Like a Pirate

Yes I know that pirates are passe, but I was always one to be somewhat behind the trend. Not anymore...



In the wee hours this morning, while I was sound asleep, Bitsy must have gotten spooked by something, She sometimes sleeps between our pillows. I woke up to a cat jumping off of my face. Unfortunately, one of her claws caught my lower eyelid and the rest of my cheek. It was quite traumatizing and i'll spare the details. I went to urgent care this morning and thank God she didn't get my eye, just the inner corner. But he told me I have to go and see a plastic surgeon within 2 days. Remind to tell you about my blood/injury phobia sometime, because it's activated like crazy right now.

So this post won't be long because I can't see too well right now and I am getting frequent bouts of syncope (my blood pressure plunges and I feel as if i'm going to faint). But one thing I have discovered that is a comfort - I can knit halfway laying down, with just one eye! Arrrrrrrgh! I'm not sure when I'll be posting again - hope to see you all soon.

OMG!!!!! You poor thing! I've gotten woken up from cats using my body as a springboard, but thankfully never my face. And she must have really dug in if you need to see a plastic surgeon. Update the blog when you can!!

Oh, no! Poor you. Naughty Bitsy. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...this is way worse than that! I'm certain Bitsy is very upset about the whole thing.

Uh-oh! I hope it heals well and there's no scar. Eye injuries are a phobia of mine...

Oh - poor baby! Well, I certainly think since knitting is not impeded and other stuff is - all knitting all the time. (For now.)
