Okay so, I know right now in my life, just about everything hurts. Joints, ribs, breathing, eating, sleeping, etc. I had previously been able to just sit down in the evening and knit and not think about what the baby was doing to cause the latest hurt.
Two days ago, I finished the left glove of the Fetching pattern. Yesterday, I immediately cast on for the right glove so as not to succumb to SGS (second glove syndrome?). I got through one…ONE!..round before I had to stop. My fingers were killing me. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t knit with dpns in oh 3 or 4 years, or if I’m holding them wrong, or if I knit the darn thing too quickly…
Tonight, after letting my hands rest for almost 24 hours, I picked it up again, and got through maybe 10 rounds this time before having to stop. At this rate, I’m not going to finish in time to start the Dashing set for my dad before Christmas.
Is there anything I can do to stop my fingers from hurting everytime I pick up my needles now?
