I can't knit!

I have stopped knitting for a couple of days because my fingers have been getting numb. It's not a continual numbness. I guess it's Carpal tunnel syndrome and I don't want it to get worse. I do have a glove to wear but that wasn't helping. I think it's because I have been knitting too many socks on double pointed needles. Maybe I will have to switch to circular needles for socks. It has been better the last two days, so I will back off for another day or two. Maybe I will pick up my ripple afghan since it's crochet.

I did finish another sock before I stopped knitting. It's Trekking Zitron XXL in a demin colorway (335). I used size 2 needles. These should be great with jeans.

I then started a basic sock using Sweet Georgia sock yarn in the saltwater colorway with size 2 needles. I really like the yarn and the color.

I am still working away on my Girasole (I'm on chart E) and I've started the sleeves on my Central Park Hoodie.

I have been buying quite a bit of yarn from the Knitter's Edge. That place is my downfall. But, I still love it there.

I got two skeins of Zauerball. Tropical Fish and Summer Meadow. Pretty colors.


Two skeins of Prism Saki sock yarn. One colorway is Freesia:

Prism - Freesia

The other colorway is Aruba. Eileen (from Knitter's Edge) is working on a sock using this colorway and it is very pretty.

I also got Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino to make a baby hat. The colors are an off white and denim. It's such nice soft yarn. I got the pattern from Jimmy Beans Wool.

I also bought 4 skeins of Encore worsted yarn in purple to make a baby blanket.

Plymouth Encore - purple

Now if I could only knit.

Now I have the urge to knit blue 'Jeans' socks.

I wonder how many people go to their doctor with very mild carpal tunnel, complaining that they "can't knit socks!!". hehe.
