Knitting Sabbatical

Wednesday, April 05, 2006

I haven't knit since Saturday. The US 0s are doing a number on my poor wrist. It's not knitting with tiny bamboo needles that's the problem technically. It's that I am so careful and hold my knitting weird when I'm knitting on them because I'm scared I'll ruin them - bending them into shapes reminiscent of a U-bend or, worse yet, snapping them in half. When I try them (okay, it) on, it feels great! I love that I can't really feel all the little purl bumps because they're so small but it's definitely not worth this uncomfortableness or possible permanent wrist damage. I figure I'll sloooooowly finish up this pair and then go back to knitting socks on size 2's. Not sure if I'll try 1's.

Anyway, that's all. I haven't been able to do any more figuring out of my html and web stuff either because mousing is weird and uncomfortable. My wrist doesn't even really hurt, it just feels weird and tingles sometimes and I know that's not a good sign.

So yeah, not alot of knitting this week. Hopefully next week! I have to check on my winter set's yarn and see how much I need to order to complete the hat and mittens (since I used two balls of it on my sweater).

Eek! Don't hurt yourself! Just knit with the needles normally...worst case scenario, they bend or break. If they bend, they just might become more comfortable, and if they break, you go out and buy more. Sure, it's inconvenient, but it's better than the dreaded tingling!

are you sure you cannot use metal 0's? then you wouldn't have to worry so much about not snapping 'em!
good luck to your wrists! stay healthy! :)
