Now that I'm knitting a scarf for my Beloved Stepmother, my Dear-Sister-In-Law (DSIL) has had a scarf related accident that makes me think that they should be banned from the planet.
DSIL was riding the escalator, a thing she does at least twice daily. Somehow, and I do not yet have the details, the escalator managed to get a-hold of her scarf, and without sufficient warning to let her unwind it from her person so that the escalator could just have the stupid thing, it pulled her forward, slamming her face into the ground.
This was more than just a wee ouch. This was a trip to the emergency room and thence to surgery, to keep her from just plain losing her nose, with a healthy topping of 70 stitches. And to add to the fun... her heart stopped while she was in surgery and they had to do one of those Pulp Fiction moves, where they stab a needle right into her heart to inject some drug so it would start again. SCARY.
With this as background, I'm guessing you're all thinking what I'm thinking. I must knit a cowl for DSIL. I must knit this cowl RIGHT NOW. I must finish it before I see her at the family party on the 23rd.
My only challenge --- well okay, my main challenge -- I have no idea what color coat she wears (or wore, she may be getting a new one, as I imagine the old one is stained). And, I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't really know her color preferences.
Gotta love the mug, yes? Even though I'm not a huge Starbuck's fan -- and if fact actually prefer the coffee provided by our local coffee shop folks -- once I learned that BigBucks had this mug -- I just had to get one. In my case, I went into the actually store, and came out with mug and coffee. I've since learned that you can shop online...but I can't find this particular one in their online store.
Okay, while I go call my OTHER Sister-in-Law about DSIL's color preferences, I'll leave you with...
