Yes, my endpaper mitts are finally nearing completion. I just need to bind off the second one and knit the thumbs. Yes, I’m redoing the thumb on the first one. I am nothing if not a Virgo to the core. But don’t look at my bedroom, which is a mess. And somewhere in that mess my Chibi case is buried, with all seven of my tapestry needles. I obviously can’t finish these babies until I find them. Cue desperate search in which I discover everything that’s missing in my life, except the needles. I will not buy new ones. I know the second I do the originals will turn up; that’s how I ended up with seven of them to begin with.
My own thumb, however, currently looks like this:
because I knit too much. No, that is not a typo. I have DeQuervain’s Syndrome from too much knitting (well, and typing, and piano playing.) Normally I don’t have to do much beyond wearing the brace at night, and taking it easy on the typing, but yesterday I brought a stockinette sock with me to class, and ended up knitting quite a bit in just a few hours.
Which left me with ridiculous wrist pain last night/this morning. So on with the brace, and no knitting for two days. Which will really help me finish those endpaper mitts. heh. Oh well. Maybe this will give me a chance to catch up on some homework that I’ve been ignoring.
