Still very little knitting content

August 10th, 2008

I haven’t done any knitting at all for a while now. This is partly due to the whole Final Fantasy Tactics A2 thing, but also because I am trying to deal with some really shitty health news. As with all these things, it takes me a while to absorb and digest the information before being able to talk about it and put it out there.

So I have a bone tumour on the inside of my left pelvic bone. It isn’t huge, but it could be causing all my problems. At the very least I think it is causing all my leg pain. Chances are that it is benign and is just one of those weird anomolies that happen. Hopefully it is causing *all* of the problems and once they whip it out I will be back to normal, but I am not holding my breath.

Until they fix me, I am a rattling pill repository. (Which has side effects of it’s own – namely a complete lack of appetite). And although I am spending lots of time in bed, the idea of knitting, or doing anything really, is not appealing. This has changed a little today, and I am hoping that I will feel like doing more soon.

I did manage to knock out a pair of booties for a fresh sprog who I will always think of as Number 6 (even though he has a very nice name), and I now have a fancy new camera to photograph my knitting endeavours with. I need to learn how to use it properly, but I don’t think these photos turned out too badly.

There was some yellow pooling round the side of both booties

I think they came out quite nicely
