A black eye and a finish

Wednesday morning saw me at the hospital to have the cyst removed from my eyelid. I have to say I was really impressed. I was in and out before my appointment was due and the actual procedure was over within five minutes.

It has been interesting to watch the colours my eyelid has gone over the last few days. Today, the red bit of the bruise is surrounded by a lovely shade of yellow.

As you can imagine, not a lot got done on Wednesday and Thursday, but I did get the knitting needles out yesterday and have finished this girls jumper. It was interesting to do a v neck jumper with a roll neck collar, but I like the way it all turned out.
This was knitted using Wendy Narvik yarn which is 85% acrylic, 5.5% mohair, 5.5% wool and 4% polyester. It is really soft and cuddly and should be really comfortable to wear.
This weekend's project is to finish the mail art envelope.

I love the jumper. I'm glad you got that cyst removed. I'm sure that couldn't have been comfortable.
