My son pointed out that one of the new designs for the holiday postage stamps are knitted! He said they would be good ones for our Christmas cards. Here is the a picture of them from the USPS website. My thumb still hurts, but not nearly as much as the other day. I have it pretty covered with bandages to protect it. It's a great excuse, I mean, reason to get out of washing the dishes. I did manage to bake up several cake layers to use for Saturday and put in the freezer, and even did a little knitting and finished up one of my small projects. It's probably going to take while to heal, but at least it won't keep me from knitting, baking, and taking care of my family.
