Post-Christmas Mortem and My Knitting Injury


I have finally emerged from my post-Christmas funk to recap my knitting mania of trying to finish gifts by Mom's Christmas Eve dinner. I actually did pretty good this year all considered. Here are the finished products:

Miriam's Ice Queen (from Knitty Winter 2007)

Piper's Ganomy Hat with Bows (from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac) with bows designed by me.

Nana Sheila's Cabled Pocket Shawl (from Knit Picks) It looks like this pattern is no longer available at the Knit Picks site, but you can get it on ravelry as a free download.

MB's Tudora (from Knitty Winter 2007)

At the same time I was still taking classes to finish my Saddle Shoulder Aran Sweater, which is still in progress although the class is over.

The result: KNITTING INJURY!!!!!

My left arm from my wrist to my shoulder hurt so bad I couldn't sleep. I went to the doctor and he said I have tendenitis in my rotator cuff and I have to stop knitting for at least two weeks. If it's not better by then I will need to go to physical therapy.


More soon, Sue

make sure you do the work on your relationship with your knitting needles.

Your gifts are lovely! I made Tudora as a shop sample out of Donegal Tweed - I like yours better. Hope you're back to knitting soon,

Yes Craig I'm so horribly co-dependent! :-) Hi Lyn! Hope you had a good Christmas!
