Slow Progress...

I'm making slow progress on my Pullover Cable sweater. So far the back is finished and the front up to the point of shaping the neckline. I hope to finish that tomorrow and cast on for the sleeves. I decided to stick with the round neckline instead of the "V" neck. I'm just not sure about how to change it. This is what I am hoping my sweater will look like...


With all the doc appointments lately I thought I should cast on for a new pair of socks. I just hate sitting in the doctors office waiting to be seen with nothing to do. The yarn is "Crayons" Simple Stripes by knit Picks. I'm using a size 2 needle. So far I'm having good luck with them. The last time I cast on socks it was the "Sweet Tart" socks. I had a lot of trouble with dropping stitches. I don't know if you can see, but I'm starting work on the heels. I always work both socks at the same time. On the first pair of socks, I knit one then the other. My gauge was totally off and I ended up with a normal sock and a huge sock. I learned my lesson.

Nothing new to report on the knee...It's still here and it still hurts. I ice it daily and use the Tens Machine. The Tens unit is incredible. I got new 2 in. x 3 in. electrodes for it last week instead of the 2 in. x 2 in. pads I was getting for the past year. The new larger electrodes are Wonderful!!! I wish I had gotten them all along. With the unit I'm not "pain free" but I do get some relief. I just wish I could use the Tens unit and the knee brace together but haven't had any luck with that yet. The brace interferes with the electrodes. Oh well...some relief is better than none and I'll take what I can get.

So sorry to hear that the injections aren't working yet. I hope your knee feels better soon.
