I met with the diabetes educator today. She was very nice, kind, and knowledgeable. She showed me how to use the Accu-Chek, confirmed the Plate Method, and assured me that if I keep my blood sugar level where it should be, I have no greater risk of diabetic complications than someone who doesn’t have diabetes.

My blood sugar level was 147. This is where it’s supposed to be. I felt like I had gotten an A. Or won something.

It was very cheering. Exciting, even.

A shipment arrived from KnitPicks. Their Cables book is awesome, filled with sweaters both classic and special. I have 7 skeins of CotLin (I’m not sure what it’s intended for, but I remember looking it up) and some High Desert DK. Beautiful shades of blue.

A good day.
