No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth,,,

However, I think I did something very very bad to my knee. It hurts most of the time, but somewhere around a three level, so I can manage it. But now- it seems there is a tiny little troll that is hammering really hard inside the knee and making my whole leg swell up. (Just a side note-this is the knee with the replacement- it has never really been "right") I have really been pushing it- trying to do things I know I shouldn't do- but I just wanted to prove to those people at work that I could do it. Well, I did it and I honestly don't think anyone has even noticed (so much for that theory) Anyhow, I suspect it is time to go and see the surgeon again.


I got some yarn for a little sweater for the baby- I just have to finish it (I have the back done) It is from Naturally Yarns Buttons (LOVE that yarn) in orange and yellow and a bright aqua green- very cute. Here is the pattern-sweet or what??????

If I have time. I will knit the wee hat.


Apparently , the new mommy doesn't much care for traditional pastels (good) and has no idea whether we have a girl baby or a boy baby coming. So this should be just fine, I hope.
Gotta go- gotta knit!

Bummer on the knee! You really do need to take care of yourself. At least you'll have lots of good knitting time while you prop your leg up.

I remember when I had knee surgery years ago, I went back to work too early, also. I was working as a sheet metal mechanic, so wound up propping my leg up on the oddest assortment of equipment.

What a drag about the knee! Tell me you didn't blow out a total knee replacement to prove a point? I killed myself for 15 years in a manifestly unsuitable profession just to prove to "them" that I could overcome... stuff. And nobody noticed. (Quite possibly nobody has noticed that I'm gone now, either). Lesson learned though - costly personal sacrifices are best done solely for one's own reasons.

Ahhh! That sounds painful.
I had a partial ACL tear with an MCL tear and cartilage too - I had surgery and 8 months of physio. My knee aches just thinking about yours.

I hope you won't need another surgery. Sorry to hear they're not paying attention to you at work. Perhaps they aren't worth it?

Sending you thoughts of healing...
