Gorgeous knitting! Sounds like you are well prepared to enjoy the enforced rest. Wishing you a quick recovery.

Glad you're taking it easy after your ordeal. Happy knitting!

I had a friend have similar surgery; girl, you must be tough. That is painful stuff. Hope you are healing well and feeling better.

What fabulous socks. Glad you have something so lovely to play with while you are recuperating. Please rest and let yourself heal. xxx

Thinking of you, dear Beth --

Ow! Rest well, and make J do the food chewing for you.

Here's to a swift recovery for you, Beth.

Ah, Beth, ouch. Glad you're over the worst of it. I like the socks; I have a pair of thick, hand-knitted, stripy socks I bought in Pokhara. Different colours, less vivid, but I too wear them as house (or Ruahine hut) slippers, and they get similar responses to yours.

Dental troubles are just *awful*. Hope you recover soon! I had trouble with two wisdom teeth almost all of last year and not enough money to get them fixed till I went home in December. Hopefully, I won't need to visit a doctor in a while now. *Fingers Crossed*

Also, the socks are beyond adorable!

Lovely knitting, the cure for all ills! Feel better soon.

Superb socks! I had to look up coleus but having done so can't think of a better description. You are, and shall be, flora footed. I need to make some boot socks - that looks like a fine pattern...

Who needs food when there's knitting! (Ok, ok)

You are all so wonderful, and each so much yourself! Each comment has made me feel better. I'm a lot better today though my face is really swollen, in spite of the ice. And I'm up, dressed, and ready to do some actual work after a "real" breakfast: decaf coffee, a scrambled egg with chevre, and a nice bowl of cream of rice with milk and a little maple syrup. Life isn't that bad this morning - just don't make me laugh, please!

Good lord, an ordeal indeed. Glad you're feeling better. (Hmm, should really get around to getting my teeth checked...)

Look, don't work too hard, OK? Your body needs to pour its energy to healing, which it won't if you get too busy-busy :-)

Speedy healing to you, Beth!

Oh Beth, how funny. Here I sit in Brooklyn with an aching mouth: yesterday marked the beginning of my second round of orthodontics & oral surgery to fix persistent jaw/teeth issues. We share not only a name but a dental achilles heel, it seems.

I am finding yogurt smoothies and vicodin helpful, at present. I also recommend rice-with-dal. Here's wishing us both a speedy recovery. And what lovely yarn!

Oh, feel better, Beth. Huge empathy from one who had her wisdom teeth dug out of her jawbones and sinuses with only Novocaine, then found the Greek taxis on strike and had to hemorrhage into a towel all the way up the mountain on an extremely bouncy bus (and has remained a bit jumpy about these things ever since). Instant-breakfast/'meal replacement' shakes are good, too, or protein shakes with banana and yogurt if that's not too grainy. Ugh. Hope you're healed up soon! Fun socks have extraordinary comforting power, it's true.

As long as it's not chipmunk feet and striped cheeks (:
Tea and lots of sympathy, Beth, the jolly socks are a great remedy too. Maybe they could be issued to all dental patients in a goody bag along with the codeine and Tylenol? I too have been in Achilles hell and anything to be free of it is good.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
