Well, impaled is perhaps a better description.  A soapy crystal pitcher slipped out of my hands while I was washing it and I went to catch it and I impaled my hand on a Transamerica building-shaped shard.  I now have six stitches (not the kind of stitches I normally like!).  I actually consider myself lucky — although it’s on my right (dominant) hand, it’s on the outside near my pinky knuckle.  It could have been on my palm or through a finger.  I also am in much better shape than the poor, poor woman having a miscarriage across the hall from me in the ER.  I could hear how incredibly ill she was and I was just sick and sad for her.  In any event, knitting and blogging will be on a break for hopefully just a few days!  🙂
