I now have a regualar thumb! I got my cast off on Tuesday, and now have a splint. I'm far from normal though, I have very limited movement, and it hurts to pick up a lot of stuff. But I'm still knitting, and that's the important thing.
On the weekend I took my cousin to Romni's to get her yarn for a project. She picked out pink and green and blue varigated yarn. I think that she's only going to work on it when she's at my house, which is cool. She's practically my little sister, so she's over a lot. Her family is also going through some interessting (and very complicated) changes, all of which she is in the middle of, so hopefully the knitting can really help.
