Update on the lack-of-knitting

If you’re here regularly (hi, I love you) then you’ll know I can’t knit right now. I haven’t been able to since April or so. This is inconvenient with more than one baby on the way in my immediate family, but it is what it is.

I’ve been having massages to try to help and mostly it has helped. However, in the last few days it’s got a lot worse. It’s hard to get an appointment with my doctor (I’m switching doctors very soon because of this and other things) so I haven’t been able to get physiotherapy yet, but I definitely need it.

Anyway. It’s to the point where I can’t knit, crochet, spin, draw, write on paper, or open a damn jar. So that’s fun. My hobbies are all out of the picture except reading and watching Netflix so if you have any recommendations, let me know! I need the distraction.

I know I brought this on myself and I definitely made it worse by refusing to give up 75% of my hand-related hobbies, and I regret that now. But it’ll pass eventually and I’m being much more careful now.

Let’s hope it passes quickly; I still love looking at what everyone else is doing and it’s bringing on the knitting envy!

  1. Hi, Hope your health gets better soon. I have been reading your blog for some time now and have always wondered how you survive this no-knitting phase. Good to see you are holding up. Take care. xoxo

  2. Take care of those hands, girl! You need them to work well for you for a very long time! Meanwhile, yoga? Walking? Or maybe just dreaming? 🙂 Life is short – just enjoy!

  3. Is it harmful to use a knitting loom? I’m not sure if this is a solution, given I’m not sure what motions are harmful or painful. If you’ve got a friend nearby with a loom to knit on, maybe it’s at least worth inspecting.

  4. Hoping you have a speedy recovery 🙂 enjoy the downtime. Have you thought of teaching? Would you have an outlet for that? Either basics or pattern designing, though I know you technically need to be able make it to design it but if you were assisting rather than making would that make it worse for you? Sorry not helpful 🙂

    1. That might be helpful in general – right now I wouldn’t be able to, but only because of work hours and impending school start next month! In any other time it would have been a very useful suggestion so thank you 🙂 You’re awesome 🙂
