Saturday and Sunday are pretty much a pain/pain medicine induced blur. Yesterday was the first day that I did anything much more than sleep. And while I was awake, I did this:
and started this:
The yarn for both is Cherry Tree Hill's Supersock in the Peacock colorway and I'm using metal Susan Bates dpns in size 0. I have heard it said that getting started when knitting a sock on double pointed needles is a bit like lassoing an octopus. I would say that is a pretty accurate description. The size 0's are SO TINY. They feel almost fragile. It took a little getting used to but now I think I have the hang of it. It feels like it is going to take forever to knit a pair of socks but I am optimistic.
The Gory Details
My ankle is still really swollen and, of course, still hurting ridiculously bad. Here is the little incision on the top of my ankle where he repaired the cartilage (and took note that the graft he did in August is doing "exceptionally well").
Then here is the big incision, where he fixed the tendons.Next Tuesday, he will take out the staples (8 and 16, respectively) and then he will put on a hard cast, which I will be in for 4 weeks.
