Update

Hip is a whole lot better, so much so that I am going to attempt the trip down to OFFF in Canby, OR. Friend Val will go with me, will pick her up in Seattle area.

More when I get back with pix.

Gimpier hip


Don't know what I did to make hip much worse nearly two weeks ago now, from 3 out of 10 for pain it suddenly jumped to 9 out of 10. Enuff so that I saw Dr Rob in Tatla knowing now where this was leading, he sent me for X Rays into Williams Lake, next will be a consult with surgeon in Kamloops (maybe a bit sooner than 2 months) then hip replacement maybe in another 2 months. So am so far behind on laundry, etc that I will soon have to bite the bullet and just wash what ever (mixed colors). Oh well guess it could be worse. Have a prescript for pain so far have only taken 1 that was the day I got home from town and made 3 or 4 trips up the steps into the house with perishables. Now getting to cold at night to leave anything in the car (had squash, zucchinis and swiss chard. Have had several mornings that Tatlako was coldest spot in BC right at that hour.

I am at least still able to spin, just finished the second bobbin of a variegated green mix. Think its merino, but bought it a long time ago so not positive.


Not much else going on in my wild mountain valley. Expecting deer hunters once day time highs are cold enuff to haul whatever they kill back to home area. Saw 9 deer (all does) on last trip to town, bucks prolly have moved to higher country for now, don't know how they know that season is open. Today is week 2 in college football games, will watch Michigan play Central Fla., knitting on current socks.

One Of's

Have 6 bobbins of yarn with nothing else close to matching, so will ply with something as close (maybe) as I can get. Likely will be going into socks so a perfect same color is not necessary.

A week or so ago finally got the orange creme sickle plied, because its relatively fine seems like it took forever to spin and even longer to ply. And no ideas what I had planned for it so will just go into stash until something jumps out at me.

I finally did get to town (5 weeks in between trips), was down to less than a weeks worth of prescriptions so refilled all, got a much needed haircut and Friday morning first thing to the farmers market for real tomatoes. I've enjoyed every single one I've eaten, even just a tomato (large) with cottage cheese, hard boiled egg and toast for supper.

All the plying I've been doing as given me empty bobbins again, for a bit hadn't had anything empty for the Louet S 90 and had been spinning on a different Louet wheel (S 70).

I often give small leftover balls of sock yarn to Christine P at knitting bee, most often they are to small for me to use in my patterns on socks, she doubled the yarn and made a pair of real Monstersocks. I have done a couple of pairs for a friends son but used bigger leftover balls, not so many ends to deal with.

Two weeks now between trips to clinic for blood letting, maybe just maybe INR has finally stabilized. Hope for upcoming winter I will only have to go maybe every three weeks or even a month between trips. Keeping fingers crossed that it is good after yesterdays blood work.
