People who have to wear wrist braces and eat ibuprophen to keep pain at bay ought not knit.
They ought to avoid unnecessary keyboarding actions, and shun the mouse.
At least for a day or so...
The wrist brace has resumed it's control of my right hand. It stays there all day... all night..(very sexy to sleep in, I'm sure). It joined the required wardrobe on Sunday evening.
Monday, in addition to the wrist pain that summoned Mr. Brace, I also had some bizarre stiffness in my left shoulder. Hmph. I was not as good about avoiding the keyboard and mouse as I should have been, but I actually managed to shun the needles until about 9:30 p.m. But how am I supposed to watch a movie without knitting?
Aren't they just lovely? I'm really ticked that my wrist is telling me to avoid size 0 needles. (DH doesn't like it much either, as his socks are also on 0's). I'm loving these socks, and enjoying even more the fun of test knitting (conversations with the designer are always fun).
Tuesday, Mr. Brace was still with me. My shoulder was a bit better, but the wrist is dictating all sorts of rules. No Yoga that includes Down Dog. (I mean c'mon... how do you do a whole yoga routine without at least ONE Down Dog??) Drastically reduced Knitting and keyboarding...
I managed to elude the needles until about 2:00 when I met a friend at the library to knit (and teach her the fine art of decreasing for her first ever knit hat). I went with hope alive, and a tad more sanity: I took Mystic Light to give her a few extra rows.
There's no hiding from the truth. This yarn is gorgeous.
It's wasted on this pattern, and this pattern is wasted on this yarn.
Today.... it goes to the frog pond. If I don't find an alternative yarn, I'll find a new project for Knitting with Nora by Monday.
My brace and I are going to go read a good book now. Tonight is Bad TV night. How will I survive Next Generation without knitting??? Looks like it's a Deep Breath night (lovely big needles). ((lovely big needles???? when did anyone think that phrase would escape my lips. shudder))
