Remember my hand pain? Well, it's continued and has gotten worse over the past few months. I've been afraid to talk about it much, because everything I do for work involves my wrists—all the typing, the formatting, the knitting—all of it. I finally went to a specialist, who determined that I have cubital tunnel syndrome.
Which is a RELIEF. It's treatable. More specifically, it's treatable with this:
A brace in two sections! I wear the wrist/hand section while I work AND while I sleep, and wear the entire contraption while I sleep. It's totally stiff. It's taking some getting used to.
It's not slowing down the knitting, however. Here's one of my recent square shawl examples, first spread out to show off:
Then as worn:
The orange yarn is Zauberwiese sock yarn in Fruchtcocktail and the Institutional Green is hand-dyed by ME in Karida's class. Spaced-out look and pajama outfits courtesy of a bad head cold. Want to learn to make this square shawl and others? Check out my classes in the previous post!
