That is what it is like when I have bloodwork done. I mean they've even taken to using the children's needles to get blood. Finding a vein is a long painful process as well. So last Friday when I had to have blood work done, I was not looking forward to it. We were however using a different clinic in the town where we have moved too, so I was praying and hoping things might be easier.
It was, thank goodness, the only thing that hurt was the tap, tapping trying to find a vein. I was so pleased and thankful I came out of there smiling. Never thought anything more, until Monday and I was talking to my dad on the phone and he mentioned he was going for bloodwork. So I told him my story and looked at my arm.
Now that photo doesn't really show you what it is really like, but I am all bruised. I was puzzled as she didn't hurt me? My dad said I maybe lifted something heavy, well I carry my handbag on my left arm and she took blood from my right? Otherwise I didn't lift anything heavy that day. Very puzzling.
I knit my first dishcloth and will gift it to dd, as she never has any dishcloth's at her house.
I went to the knit and sit despite being sick as I wanted to make a start on knitting a hat. I only stayed a couple of hours though. The pattern is "knit in the round," which although I knew what it meant, I couldn't get my head around it as how to do it.
Now I am telling you, without the ladies help I would never have been able to do this. Now that I have done this, it's pretty easy. I am using this pattern, except no stripes and it is for a toddler. I am also a follower on their blog as it's so good. I was telling dh that there is hope for me with this knitting!
Finally thank you everyone for your great comments yesterday. It was really interesting to read why people blog, don't you think? If I didn't comment back on your blog, my apologies.
