No knits here

Posted by Nanc

Not that anyone is coming around much since the posts have dried up. (Apparently there’s been either a mental or a time drought in these parts.)

But just in case you did stop by for a looksie or this was picked up in your Bloglines, know that there is no knitting content. None. Only a lackluster explanation of why there is no knitting. (Sad, really. Pathetic.)

Read on only if you want to pity me or listen to my whimpers (or, more likely, kick me in the caboose and tell me to get real).

It all started with my wrist. (You need those things for knittin’ apparently.) A slight, yet highly annoying and painful sprain to my right wrist kept me out of knitting commission for a good long time. To add insult to injury, it may have been knitting related!

See… A few months ago I was finishing up the re-read of Harry Potter book 3 by listening to the audio file. (That voice is greatness.) It was towards the end of the book, where all the action happens, and I was knitting. And knitting.

The next day, my hand/wrist were sore and tender from lack of breaks while knitting all night. I tried to rest it; I even moved my mouse to my left side! Then a couple days later, while doing something that involved not paying attention to what hand I was using, I went to through the trash out and heard (and felt) a PING.

Since, I’ve been trying to rest it and give it time to heal. But I have never been a patient person.

So while I was waiting to heal, I lodged a massive knot in my back which left me couch- and heating pad-bound. (There’s something to be said about not sleeping on one side the entire night.) A bit of the heating pad and a few nights in the hot tub helped to work the large sailor

    Whine whine whine…. 🙂 I understand back pain though, and consider the heating pad to be one of the world’s best inventions.

    Happy Anniversary! My 7th is coming up in October.

    I leave town, and everyone blogs! Yippee! I’m sorry about your stretch of injuries, though I am sure you will make up for missed knitting time quickly.
    A HUGE thank you for providing me a way to skip the gory details-the only thing worse than feet is sick feet.

    Congrats on the 7 years. 🙂

    Ouch! What a run of bad luck! I’ve been checking periodically and was getting concerned that you had falled off the face of the Earth. I’m glad you’re back and hopefully you’ll be posting more often than once very three months!
