I have a third-degree burn on my right arm, nothing to worry about. It's not huge and it's healing nicely with no sign of infection. But I couldn't knit! The burn is very near my elbow and the constant flexing of those muscles was very uncomfortable. Knitting is how I deal with stresses and things so I lost my self comforting mechanism. I finally was able to cast on last night and knit for an hour or so. It was such a comfort. I didn't realize how much knitting has become a part of my life, until i couldn't do it for awhile. It's feeling even better today so I may get to knit longer this afternoon. I just needed to vent a little.
