Gettin’ my knit on…

By

I’ve had a horrid problem these past few months (that, as a positive, side effect, led to my spending so much time exploring resin) which is this: something is the matter with my wrists.

They ache like nobodies business. It’s not even a mystery – between 17 years of karate, 20 years of using computers, 10 years of pottery and the knitting marathon that followed my discovery of hand knit socks…. it’s a wonder they don’t creak like old wheels.

As a result, I’ve focused more on resin and given up (largely) on knitting for a few weeks now. It’s been _awful_. I couldn’t take it anymore, and started (slowly) trying to get my knit on again. Here is my latest FO – another Bev Cowl, done up with 2 skeins of TFA green label in ‘Chris Grey’. This pattern is so snugly and warm, and totally free!

My knitting partner in Crime, Rayna from the Crystal Diva, went out with me on the weekend and helped me choose a few needles for magic loop, which should ease up some of my issues – and gave me a lesson to go with my shiny new Chiagoo cables 🙂 wish me luck!
