Knitting Injury

I can’t knit or crochet :””””'(

I’ve got some sort of repetitive strain injury which they thought was tendonitis but after two weeks of unsuccessful treatment for that decided it is a nerve problem. So I’m on medication to treat it and FULL REST – no knitting, no crochet, until it’s better. It’s hell!

It’s been about 8 weeks of this. What if I’ve forgotten how to knit?

So I’ve been doing fun stuff like trying to wind this nice yarn into a ball and getting completely tangled up for hours. (There was a lot of swearing involved):

And I’ve made some things in pottery class and I sewed a dress for my niece:

So that’s why I’ve been a little quiet on the knitting front lately. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to start knitting a little again! I’m supposed to start with 15 mins at a time so it’ll take me about a year to make a newborn cardigan 😥 slow updates in the future!


Sewing (AKA not-knitting II)

Lately it’s been too warm for me to knit because I didn’t want to risk a flare up of heat rash on my hands 😦

I miss it and I’m looking forward to Autumn days curled up with tea and knitting – but in the mean time there is Summer! And this Summer there is Sewing!

I made some cushion covers for my sister’s new place from her left over curtain fabric:

And a little pinafore dress for my niece with different curtain remnants (just like in The Sound of Music!) and some cupcake fabric remnants I had lying around:



I'm pretty sure this is the pic I took of the bit I did wrong, and had to re-do.

Error! I had to peel these interfaced pieces apart and sew them together correctly.



Knitting is on the cards shortly and I’ve got a sweet pic of my yarn stash to look forward to for next time! Till then, happy stitchin. xx
