I'm waiting for the results.

I haven't knitted since the doctor told me to stop.


Still waiting...

Might you be allergic to wool? That is no fun!

I am allergic to everything under the sun, but nothing food or textile wise...more just everything outdoors that can be breathed in!

Did the doctor not do the scratch test...those results are usually pretty immediate...unless of course you are on a laptop in the lab right now....*smiles*

I hope you get good news soon so you can pick up your knitting again. if you are allergic to wool, you can always use cotton, silk, bamboo to mention a few options.

so how big did your bumps get?
mine were all small
they reserved the big and scareys for blood drawn, not scratch test

I don't know, it was on my back.

I only reacted to one of the allergens, by the way (don't know which one yet)

they should have told you then and there

I HATE cagey crap like that in the medical field
