Pictureless, Woe-filled Post...

...don't say you weren't warned!

Not much to report on from the knitting front due to the lingering finger pain problem that now appears to be related to carpal tunnel syndrome. I am treating the problem with ibuprofen, a compression brace, and *hopefully* a more ergonomically kind computer workstation situation. Because apparently, I've been going about the computer-using stuff all wrong. Stay tuned.

Knitting is still uncomfortable, so I am sticking to crochet for the time being. Couple a scarves, a few rows on the old ripple afghan, you know. sigh. Reading the old blogs. Stalking some new blogs. What I am really wanting is to finish the oh so cute baby sweater and the Tess twisted rib socks. I also want to cast on for Henry for my dad, for which I have already even purchased the yarn (color=Michigan), from here (a great little shop btw). sigh again. Oh, the humanity.

Anyway, I have to think about the blue skies ahead - the Ravelry waiting list is cranking along and I am now #4545 in line. Woo-hoo! And things could be worse - at least I still have plenty of time until Christmas to finish up some of these things, right? Right?

I know your pain. My best friend Babs is in a similar situation with a cast from repetitive stress syndrome from so much knitting and now can't knit for 6 weeks!:(

Gack. Hope you feel better.

As I discover year after year, "plenty of time" is a relative term.

Thanks for the kind words on the scarf!
