Good news!

We must have caught the shingles really early.  There has been no spreading, and I can leave the house!  I have 10 blisters, which are shrinking with the medication that my doctor prescribed!  On Thursday, when I went to the Doctor, he got a culture of the fluid, and the results came back normal.  Isn’t that great?  So, because it looks like shingles, and is acting like shingles (it really hurts), we are treating it like shingles.  I’m just so glad that it isn’t spreading.

I’ve not had a knitting post in a while, and while I have little time to knit, I have finished a few little things.  I made Calorimetry with some Artful Yarns Worsted Weight Superwash.  It came out so cute.  I’ll have someone else try it on so that I can take a picture.  I also made a matching pair of Maine Mitts.  These are a gift for some one special.  I’m also working on a felted purse, a kit I bought at Stitches West.  I think it’s coming along fine.

Well the boy is crying, so that’s all for now.


  1. That is good news.  Maybe after they are all cleared up you can get the immunization for shingles.  I’ve read that even after having the shingles you can get them again so an immunization is a good thing.

  2. I’m glad you caught it in time, I hope you’ll get better soon!
