Kelly, I'm praying for a quick recuperation.

Lizardknits, be careful with that leg!

blkirback, love your knitting!

I have an idea for future blankets...how about we do some with college colors? (UNC, NC State, USC Gamecocks, VA Tech, UVA, Florida, etc.)

thanks for the concern, Sandy. I can walk. As far as my follow up goes, I will probably schedule it for Monday afternoon, since I only have one class on Mondays and Fridays, and its at 8 am (my other days are two classes each and theres an online class that I am taking). My dad sent me a list of primary care doctors in the vicinity of my location as a pdf (since I had my testing done here, it would be easier if I saw a doc here). As I said, my test came back negative for a blood clot, but I did have elevated levels of creatinase, which is a found when muscle breaks down. So, we are probably back to the same diagnosis that we started with, strained calf muscle of unknown origin. Yes I did say unknown. I havent been exercising, so its not like I hurt myself from working out. If anything, this happened in my sleep, which makes it sound even worse
still, at least I can walk now (operative word being now...........operative being a funny word considering my next pre-op appointment is november 28th, with my next surgery being this december.....yay.....more fun )
In other news, my section of the blanket is almost done (I have 2 more rows to do). I will try to get a picture soon. ::D::
hugs to all (especially Kelly)

I finished all the white stockinette, and am ready to do the duplicate stitching for my section of the "Go USA" blanket.

I decided to use an alphabet from Tink's Second Book of Duplicate Stitch Patterns for the words, and a chart for a simple star I found online.

First, I counted how many stitches I have available in the stockinette section. ( 94 stitches across, and 21 rows high)

Then, I chose the alphabet I wanted, and copied it down on a graph by hand. Next, I put it into another graph in Excel. Finally, I copied and pasted it into Paint. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. And, it was actually kinda fun!

Here's the chart I made: (click to see it large)

I think that if we decide to do college colors for future blankets, we should choose colleges that are near the hospital where we are donating the blankets. But, I would think that MAmaDawn should make the final decision.

That is so cool how you did the graph. Maybe someday I will be able to do something like that but I'm no where near that good. I can't wait to see it on the blanket.

I agree that MsmaDawn should have the final say so with the blankets.
