Not available in all areas.

Finally! The Hateful lengthy-to-complete and Totally Wonderful entrelac socks for my doctor are finished. Complete. Last end woven in and they are ready for delivery, which I shall do this afternoon after my dentist appointment.

Oh. Yes. The dentist. The first of many bags of gold will be for whitening, and the others will be exchanged for a root canal and crown on one front tooth, and a veneer on my other front tooth, and a cavity fill on the tooth next to that.

I went, initially, for whitening and because the one front tooth had chipped a bit, then a bit more and I was afraid that it do what other of my teeth have done; chip, crack, and then fall out. This was the tooth that took the force of the baseball back when I was ten. We had no money for fancy things like dentists, so mom pushed the loose teeth back into my bruised gums and I ate mashed potatoes for two weeks. That particular tooth has been discolored ever since and the doctor said it because the root was dead. Hence the root canal.

I have been told that I have a beautiful smile, and I do smile a lot, in spite my chronic depression, and I want to have this work done.

I guess I am lucky to have kept what teeth I do have for as long as this.

Hi Fuzzarelly,

Good for you.

Now we will wait for the glamor shots.

But try not to blind us with your smile in future.

No scratch that.

You go girl, shine on!

Hugs, Euphoria

Hope the Doc likes her socks.

They look wonderful.

Hugs, Euphoria


Thanks, Lady! I think she shall! Now, before the end of the year, I want to knit her stethoscope!

Those socks are awesome!! Me and teeth and dentists have a long and ugly story.. I'm glad you got to keep your teeth though.

The socks are gorgeous! And good for you for taking care of the dental business; it's worth it sometimes to do these things for ourselves. I can't wait to see your beautiful smile :)
