It's been over a week
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.

I hope your arm gets better very quickly and you can get back to the knitting you love. I know I would be lost without my knitting. It truly is sanity with pointed sticks!

Third degree?? How'd you do that? I hope you're under the care of a doctor, they can be very serious.

I'm glad it's getting better!

Hi Eccie

Oooh - made me cringe just to hear it!!

Was it from a kettle or what? Good grief, that's one very nasty burn.

I hope it won't be too long before you can pick up the sticks and knit to your heart's content again.


All the Best

Ellie (not the Welsh one)
