Extreme Knitting

I never thought that I'd have the opportunity for an extreme knitting entry, but today was my lucky day!

That is a picture of me at the dentist's office, knitting a ribbed sock while getting a root canal. Seriously. A root canal. I didn't start out the procedure knitting, but I think I was about half way through when I thought to myself, "well, this root canal seems to be going pretty well... I wonder if I could make a little progress on that sock." And so, they handed me my project bag and, well, the proof is in the photo! Not the fastest knitting I ever did, but hey--progress is progress! I'm sure they thought I was nuts when I asked them to take a picture, but they humored me just the same.

And as you can see, we both came through the procedure just fine. Many thanks to Dr. DiBernardo and Colleen of ProtoDental!

Gee, Carole, I have to say, it really wasn't painful at all. I had a small twinge towards the end of the whole thing, but the Novocain needle hurt more than the that, and even that wasn't that bad!
