Continuing pause

I apologise for the silence. I can’t think about knitting much right now because if I do I’ll want to do it, and I did a stupid. Not only did I get my hands sore in the first place, I then spent an entire day (I’m speaking around 6.5 hours or so) knitting a large blanket the first time my hand wasn’t sore. Can you guess what happened next?

The pain was so bad that I couldn’t move my fingers in one hand and I woke up from the pain in the night. It’s gone now, but I’m being careful. I’m not knitting any more for a few days at least.

Last week I also got a promotion at work, but this will just give me more energy to focus on this blog once I have time. You see, I am super productive the more I have to do in a day. (Until I burn out, but I’m getting better at avoiding that too.)

If you have any interesting things on the go right now, I’d love to see them. I can live vicariously through you at least.

    1. Thank you! I’m hoping to have some time in the next couple of weeks to get back on track with book/pattern posts, so maybe that will be a good distraction from knitting.

  1. I hit the like button because you got a promotion. Congratulations! Boo on the hand pain. I hope you feel better soon so you can spend some quality time with your knitting again.

    1. Thank you! I’m pretty excited about it, especially as the first improved paycheque comes the day before a large yarn fair I’ve been looking forward to all year. Good timing, universe.

      Thank you again for the well-wishes. My hand is recovering because I’ve banned myself from any kind of stitching, though I may let myself knit for a couple of hours at my knitting group tomorrow to get my fix.

  2. I hope you feel better soon. Congratulations on the promotion 🙂
    just finished reading Stephen King’s dark tower, getting ready for the film coming out later in the year, so no projects on the go, I can’t multitask 🙂 I’m sure you’ll find something to occupy yourself with while you heal, good luck.

    1. Reading is a great substitute for knitting. I’ve never read the Dark Tower book(s?), and in fact have barely read any Stephen King. Maybe I should fix that.

      Also, thank you!
