My knee is so much better today
Today I was allowed to shower and take the bandage off my knee. My knee feels heaps better and I am able to bend it better than before. I now have just dressings on over the small wounds and a lot of the swelling has gone down. I went for my first small walk as far as next door's house and it felt so nice to be able to walk "normally" bending both knees. I am so hopeful that with physio I will be walking about better than normal in a couple of weeks.
Before I had my spinal op my goal was always to be able to walk up Pendle Hill. When I damaged my knee again I thought that would be impossible but now I am hopeful that by this summer I will see the view from the top.
I managed to finish off the blue knitted baby cardigan although it has still finished up larger than I wanted it to be. After changing the pattern three times and using smaller needles I came to the conclusion that the wool was a thick double knit and so decided to carry on. It will fit the baby as he grows. He has now reached 10lbs so it won't be long before it fits him.
I still haven't made a decision on what to crochet for myself to go with my dress for my niece's wedding. I may leave it until I am able to get to the LYS to see if I can find a nicer wool than I already have in stash.
