Carpal Tunnel

Yes, I have carpal tunnel syndrome in my left hand. I have been trying to baby it and it has been getting better. My Doctor told me to take motrin and I am using a wrist and hand support by Everlast that I received today. It really supports and wrist and hand. Keeping my fingers crossed. I also had it in my right hand, but that is much better and doesn't hurt anymore.

I was able to complete two dishcloths. One was from my Monthly Dishcloth KAL group. It's called Happy 2010 by Alli. I used Robin's egg blue from Sugar and Cream with a size 6 needle.

The other was a KAL by the Love2Knit Dishcloth Group in Yahoo. It's called Snowbaby Washcloth by Elaine Fitzpatrick. I used Peaches and Creme in white with a size 6 needle.

I'm still sticking to not buying any yarn for awhile in 2010, but I did get some prior to the new year. I got a kit from Simply Socks that included Tilli Tomas Milan yarn in the Joyeux Noel colorway. I also got a sock bag and some stitch markers. I had ordered this in November and it came right before Christmas.

My darling husband got me a Gift Certificate for Christmas to my favorite yarn shop (The Knitter's Edge), so I bought Bijou Basin Ranch Tibetan Dream in the natural colorway. I may make socks with this yarn or a shawlette. It's 85% yak and 15% nylon. I also bought two skeins of Araucania Toronao in color 403 (a pink/blue combination) and color 407 (a green/orange combination) to make some cowls.

From Intentions Yarn club I got a variety of small skeins of different colors to make a pair of socks. I love the colors.

I can't believe that it's mid January already. I'm glad it's going quickly. Spring can't get here fast enough for me. I'm looking forward to being back out on the porch reading and knitting. Maggie will like it too.
