I had my first mammogram, which was followed by my first mammogram scare. Good news though, what they saw was determined to be just nodular breast tissue. I have to get the left breast mammogram repeated in 6 months, they don't want to see the right one again till next year. I am flabberghasted that they cannot find a less painful and humiliating way to screen for cancer. If they had to crush your head to visualize your brain I promise they would find a better way. The real issue is that you have some stranger handling your boobs, smashing them between the hard plastic. For mercy sake, can't they at least crush your boobs between something soft? Happy, healthy new year to all!

The first "S" is for soap. My friend Eleni (who I won't link to due to her lack of recent posts) and I got together and made soap for teachers' gifts. It's a shame you can't smell them - these are lemon verbena and we did a lot of lavander as well, yummm. I ran out to the craft store this morning and bought fondant cuters so we could spell out seasonally appropriate words.
The second "S" is the socks I finished like two weeks ago but didn't post. They from Trekking XXL, don't know the color number off hand. The pattern I made up as I went along. Its my fave picot edge, but this time I did an afterthought heel. I didn't like it much in progress cause the endless knit tube bored me, but I like the fit of the heel, so I will probably do it again.
