I wasn’t sure what to make for this challenge, and I know that it doesn’t really have much to do with witchcraft but let me tell you something…
This beanie here is the first crochet project that I have finished in a long time. I honestly made it just to make it because, well, I live in Florida and I doubt I will ever have to wear a beanie. I’m having some health issues and one of those involves a pain in my right shoulder. This makes doing a lot of things during my day pretty painful. I’ve been seeing a doctor who just brushed me off and instead of ordering more tests, she just kept giving me cortisone shots. I’ve had four cortisone shots since September…so that’s no good.
Anyway, I’m seeing a new doctor and I told him what was going on during our first appointment. He looked at me and said, “So when are you having surgery?” And I was just taken aback because that was not expected. I mean, I know I probably need surgery because this pain is not going away with conservative treatment but he assumed that my previous doctor went through every single step before continuing the steroid injections (which she didn’t).
Having this issue with my shoulder has made it hard to do my devotional crochet let alone many other movements. Sitting down and finishing something, even something as small as this hat, was a nice boost to my confidence and self-esteem. I ended up hurting the next day, but it was worth it.
