knit in moderation

sockapal-2-za socks one and a half
in order to preserve the integrity of my hands/arms, i will be de-tox myself from knitting, and related activities for this coming week. that includes knitting (of course), web-surfing (for knitting-related topics), and minimal blogging (this one is hard to stay away from completely).

hopefully, with such occasional voluntary self-restraint, i will be able to knit continously and happily without pain and suffer for a long time to come.

before i go into a short reclusion, here's my latest progress of sockapal-2-za socks. other WIPs, they are waiting in the wing, not forgotten (ie, SYNO scarf).

Comments

The socks are absolutely *gorgeous*! Hope you feel better soon.

i LOVE those socks, but you already know that!

http://ergocise.com/stretch.htmlTry this link. Stretching as helped me through carpal pain, 'tennis elbow' and other RM pain. Do it a couple of times a day and strengthen your muscles. Hope it works.

I hope the time off helps you with a speedy recovery! Your sockapal-2-za socks are beautiful -- what a lucky pal you have.

The socks are fabulous!Take it easy!

Your knitting just amazes me. Such works of beauty. I hope you feel better fast.

blossom i do hope you feel better soon... i pray i don't get arm/hand pain, i think i would have to be sedated if i couldn't keep myself busy with knitting.

I will be thinking of you and hoping you are feeling better - take care of yourself!
