Yesterday afternoon when I tried to walk on the treadmill I suddenly experiences a burning in the area of the right thigh that is still oozing. I immediately had to get off the treadmill and every step was that same burning in the same spot. I ended up going straight to bed and, honestly, I was scared stiff. My surgeon is on vacation this week and next so I just figured if it wasn't better today I would call the nurse at the wound treatment centre and see what she had to say. I'm not feeling the burning this morning and I think I agree with my husband's opinion that it might have been a cramp of some sort but in a very specific area. As a result, I only went on the treadmill once today and not as fast as I have been but, just in case, I don't want to risk any damage and I figure it's best to be cautious.
I'm able to sit for longer periods of time now and therefore am actually knitting. Just before the 13th I cast on the second Philosophers Walk sock. I finished it this morning and blocked it. It's drying on the blocking wire now and I put the first one next to it. As with the first sock, knitting the second sock was just pure pleasure. Oh and as an aside, the only change I did with these socks is I was using 2.25mm needles instead of 2.0mm needles. The only downside for me in knitting colour socks is I can't knit them without the chart so it's a home project.
That's why when I was at the hospital on Friday morning sitting in the day surgery area waiting around to be called, I cast on another pair of socks. The yarn is Knit Picks Felici Fingering in colour Tiki. This yarn is so soft!! I'm knitting them two at a time and the first part from the toes to the heels were knit while waiting around at the hospital - first for surgery and then followup appointments at the hospital. I hope to get them done today or tomorrow and then move on to whatever WIP I decide to pick up.
