It has been a little over a week since I have sprained my wrist. I thought, “Minor sprain. Should be back to normal by the end of the week.” Unfortunately I was wrong. While my wrist is definitely recovering, it is taking longer than I though. I can do a little knitting while wearing a brace, but not physical activity that places strain on my wrist – aka the only form of exercise I have every enjoyed, bouldering.
So with my lack of exercise, I have been spending so much time on Ravelry and knitting blogs. I am slowly working my way through “Grace” but seeing all the wonderful items knitters are creating have given me the biggest itch to cast-on-itis. It also not helpful that I have promised two people beanies and the desire to start them right away is slowly picking at my self-restraint.
I will try my best to be a monogamous knitter (not really, I have a pair of socks in my travel purse), but do not be surprised if I cast on a beanie by the end of the weekend.
I did spend three hours in a Target Starbucks waiting for my car to receive maintenance. A few inches of the cardigan were knit and a book was read. I highly recommend “Speak” by Louisa Hall. It’s an amazing book discussing themes of humanity, technology, and communication.
