Re last night’s post, I almost deleted the whole thing; everybody has billing bugs from time to time, and how boring is that?
But that second paragraph demanded to go up, somehow. I don’t know if it’s because I have a dear friend who was a battered wife for too many years (not anymore, thank goodness), but whoever it was for out there wherever you are, it was for you.Â But then I felt I had to give enough context to explain where that one was coming from.
An oddball twist came with today’s mail, and for once I am totally on Blue Cross’s side: someone put in a claim (surely someone simply keyed the wrong code) of there having been cardiovascular surgery done on me two weeks ago. On a day I was quietly sitting at home going nowhere in particular.Â And the charge for said supposed surgery?
Blue Cross demanded and got a $19 discount on that one and assured me there was no co-pay.Â Um, yeah.Â Ya think?
Meantime, the Monterey Sea Silk shawl, as soon as I rinsed it and laid it out and the lace patterns were settled into their proper places, had me going, And THAT’S why I knitted this! It felt like just one of the most gorgeous things I’d ever made, the way a finished project is supposed to feel like, and I wanted to dance on the spot.Â It was late, I only rinsed it rather than a serious blocking, but still.
I’m following it up with a scarf out of topaz Camelspin using the same lace stitchesÂ in a straight line rather than a circle, just to hedge my bets on which article of clothing the recipient might prefer. Either way, I’m quite happy with it.
