I was flicking through my past month of posts on the blog, and noticed that there is a real scarcety of FO's on here ... or any knitting content for that matter. I will be posting soon, it's just that I have been working on felted bags, and I like to knit a bunch, then felt them in tandem loads (heightened level of excitement in the house that way! mucho "oohing" and "ahhing" by me and my T). As you know, pre-felted bags don't look like much ... so I am getting close to having another one done, so hopefully will be felting in the next day or so.
Sock progress has ground to a halt ... too busy knitting bags to squeeze in time on a sock (plus, I am feeling a little discouraged, disheartened and disappointed (plus, a few more descriptives that don't start with "d" ... ;>o ) following my 2 failed attempts at many colours. I am confident that the colour I have now is "butch" , just need to get past the craft sale bags to get to work on my sweeties socks (plus, knowing I can give him a partial pair, and a note promising completion over the Christmas vacation has eased my stress level on that project a lot).
I think I may have buggered my wrists and shoulder knitting ... both hands keep going to sleep, and I have a very tender muscle in my upper arm. (Crap) I have seen a physiotherapist and my doctor (how embarrassing - a knitting related strain!). It sure does slow me down (Crap) - I have to stop , get up, walk around a little , and then resume knitting if I sit for "an extended period of time", which I am interpreting to mean more than 4 hours (ha! these men doctor types are not knitters ... define an extended period of time, please!) I know try to get up a bit more often (at least hourly for at least 15 minutes at a time). It sucks, but if I don't I can't move my arm (Crap) so I guess it pays off.
Well, this has been my 15 minute break from knitting ... back at 'er!
