You probably heard my anguished shout when I realised I had aggravated my knitting injury in my left arm…
It seems to be really exacerbated by knitting on circular needles and I’ve been knitting in the round on both the MKAL and Wingspan. I’m SO cross. I thought I was taking it easy and not pushing it with either. Obviously I have to stop working on both for at least a week. The MKAL isn’t a major problem as it’s for me, but Wingspan is a Christmas present.
I’d noticed it was a bit sore mid week which is when I got stuck into the sewing up of the Noro squares but it wasn’t until today when I picked up my MKAL that I knew I had a problem.
Even more annoyingly, it turns out that using the 3mm hook for my Scheepjes CAL is also slightly tweaking at it, though not at all like using the knitting needles. I think I’ll be doing just the one square this week.
Using my 6mm hook for the waistcoat is fine but I don’t want to push it so I’ll be taking it easy. Luckily I have some bows and flowers to sew for Christmas.
MKAL – postponed indefinitely
Wingspan – postponed for a week (at least, probably a couple of weeks)
Scheepjes CAL – just one square this week (unless it makes it worse)
Will be working on:
The waistcoat (6mm hook)
The Star blanket (also 6mm hook)
ARGH *bleeped out swearing* ARGH
I’ll leave you with a couple of photos doctored by my niece which make me laugh.
I particularly like Ollie bunny’s moustache!
