So glad to hear that the surgery went well. I'll pray for you that the healing goes quickly and you can get back to your normal life soon.

I bought some yarn last night for working on the blankets. I finally finished all of my baby projects, I'll get some pictures of things tomorrow. Things have been hetic here for the past week and I just finally got the disk back for the camera so I can take pictures.

thanks guys!!!! I hope to have pictures of it soon. I got a lot of the work on it done tonight. I went to student health services cuz my calf was swollen (I have been having excrucating calf pain for the past two days and got a cam boot for it) and I wanted a professional opinion as to whether it was bad enough to go to the ER because of the swelling or to get an ultrasound of my leg (blood clot had not been ruled out at this point. The doc at student health took a look at my left leg as compared to my right leg and it was definitely swollen. I got a cab to an ER and ended up spending four hours there, in between waiting and being seen and more waiting, and being seen, and bloodwork, and waiting, and finally results(I got back to campus at 10:15 eastern time). I was very glad that I had brought it with me to work on. It was also nice because since it is a blanket and since it is getting to be decent sized, when my hands got tired, I could put the blanket over my legs, and voila, i dont need a blanket (hospitals get cold and they asked me if I wanted a blanket). All in all, this has been a productive day for knitting.

Lizardknits I hope everything is OK! Good thinking bringing along some knitting! Last week I went with my Mom to the hospital for a test and didn't bring anything along thinking it would go pretty fast since she had the appt and all. Boy was I wrong! I would have given anything to have had some knitting or a book to read with me! I actually put some dishcloth cotton and a pair of needles in the car the next day. Next time I will be prepared!!

Lizardknits- I hope that you are okay and that everything turns/turned out alright for you.


Well, I got some picutures taken of the stuff that I made. I don't think that they are very good pictures but the camera hates me so I wouldn't be surprised.












I didn't figure you guys would need me to explain what they were!
