It will be 2 months tomorrow since my finger was operated on and last week I went back to the hand surgeon for a review and she was pretty happy with it but it is still quite swollen and starts to curl up by the end of the day so now I will be wearing a splint every night. This tumour will recur most probably so it is going to be an ongoing thing keeping this finger in good shape.
I did find some great smooth space dyed sock wool while up seeing the specialist, and boy was it reduced, $5 a 100g ball which is normally $14.95 so I bought 7 colourways hoping that this will encourage me to keep on trying to make my finger knit. I haven't used this brand Moda Vera Noir, maybe it is a Spotlight exclusive, 75% superwash wool and 25% polymide, European wool made in Turkey whatever that really means! I just did a search on this yarn and found an enterprising person is selling it for $10 per ball on Ebay.
