Ah, the Lovely Oyster


"small and rich, looking like little ears enfolded in shells, and melting between the palate and the tongue like salted sweets."
Guy de Maupassant















Ah yes...however the knife can be a brutal thing, if it slips. Behold:
















Slows down the knitting a bit. Fooey.

Ooouuuuccchh! I got a shiver just looking at that. Bummer. I knew there was a reason I don't like oysters!

It looked quite harmless and cute at first.

Dear me! That injury looks like something a pirate would sustain! I hope you are feeling better!

Ouch! I hope that heals lickety-split and gets you back to knitting pronto.

HEY! Last year I had stitches in the same spot from a run in with a knife and a bagel I was making for my daughter Rowan. It slowed my knitting too which really pissed me off. Anyway, take care of those stitches!

Isn't amazing how careful a doctor is with their stitches? I was very amazed by a guy in the ER when he did some similar ones on my finger a number of years ago.

Youch! But it looks as if you've got had an expert sewer take it on. I hope it heals quickly & doesn't affect *your* needles too much.

Thanks everybody. It is amazing how they sew it up, with a little needle like a fish hook. I once taught a surgeon how to knit in 2 days! He insisted he could, and he was right, he wanted to take it up to keep his hand-eye coordination sharp.
