I've held back. I've knit only a little bit on my lovely Socks de la Mer each day, slowly easing my wrists back into action. But I sure do like these socks:
I could wish that the texture was still as rich when they're "installed", but they're still lovely (Okay, it is lovely, since this is still sock one). Here it is on my arm:
To help me prevent wrist attacks, I've also been working on Deep Breath. It's finally looking like something other than a magenta blob.
Look ma! it's almost a sleeve!
I gotta tell you, working on 8's sure moves more quickly than working on 0's! Whoosh.
Meanwhile, I've also pretty much determined that the culprit responsible for my aching wrists wasn't really the 0's. They surely exacerbated the matter, but the true culprit is the Blue Dragon -- my truly mobile laptop. I've been using it a lot more than the behemoth on my desk, and thus have been spending a lot of time with the BlueDragon sitting in my lap, typing away on the squinched in keyboard that laptops come with instead of on the "ergonimic" keyboard I use at my desk. It's not a big wave, but that little adjustment seems to make a huge difference! For example: I spend less than an hour reading blogs and commenting on the wee laptop, and my wrist really let me know about it. Today I spent in the neighborhood of three hours typing on the wave keyboard, working on what I'm deluding myself may become a novel, reading and answering email, blogging, and instant messaging with friends .... and there's nary a twinge. Think there might be a correlation? me too.
Gotta get me another wave keyboard. I guess this means no more sitting with the thing in my lap. pout.
Okay, off to play with my 0's!
