I bought the letter off a seller on Etsy and never received them, being told they must be “lost in the post”. I question this and it turned out he had screwed up my address, but would not resend them, blaming Etsy on it. I had to order a second set in order to complete the project. It took him 5 days to actually put it in the post. Not happy as those letters cost me £10 in the end. Now I have them I will be complaining to Etsy about this as I think it was BS I was being fed. Anyway, I am very happy with the finished item.
Since it is winter, another beanie was needed, so whilst recovering from my operation I thought I would make this beanie. It is Patons DK acrylic yarn in Petrol, using a 3.5mm & 4mm needles. The pattern is a DROPS pattern called Finnley’s Hat, and is very comfortable and warm.
Two week after my operation and I can confirm it has been a somewhat success. It is too early to say it was a complete success, as only time will tell once the healing is complete and the scaring has finished forming.
The procedure was to cut away all the scaring in my nose to make the airways wider, reposition my septum and repair the large hole in it. Not all could be done as the surgeon told me due to all the operations I have had on my nose and face, there was very little to work with, therefore she was unable to reposition my septum, most of the scaring was removed, but in parts it was left as the tissue was too thin. The good news was the hole was repaired, but again due to swelling etc., only time will tell if it worked fully. I have another appointment in February to see how it all is, and if I need a further more aggressive operation.
For me, being able to breathe through my nose is great and no more whistling through it.
