I've seen and/or read enough science fiction to know visits to the doctor's office is a piece of cake. Use the loo, they run a scanner over me, and in less than 10 minutes anything and everything that is wrong is diagnosed and fixed with an injection of nanobots. I'm driving home in my flying car in 30 minutes - 60 tops.
Sadly, the reality of the doctor's visit is vastly different. The waiting in the doctor's office, the needle pricks for blood draws, the undressing, other nasty tests, and then the real waiting begins. If I'm lucky - and I was - the tests come back negative. Now it's just waiting for time to pass until the next round of doctor's visit come up.
I've finished the sleeves on my top, put the body stitches on a spare needle, and tried it on. The sleeves aren't quite long enough. I'll also need several more inches on the body. Guess what? Yip, almost out of yarn.
I'm unable to find anymore of Deauville (by Lang) yarn, so I'm thinking of getting a couple of balls of another linen blend to help make it longer. I've used my Googlefu (and Ravelryfu) to see what I could find, apparently me and other woman (in Switzerland) are the only two people on the face of the planet who have bought this brand of yarn.
