100 Days of Making: Day 120

#day120 of #100daysofmaking: Still not much knitting progress. I took #hitofudecardigan to the park and got half a row done in the blazing heat while the kids climbed up slides. I put two rows on my Inky brioche shawl. But child number one refused to nap and my wrist felt funky after half a row of knitting so for the evening knitertainment, I reorganized my stash that I finally took out of my son's room and moved to the basement, went through a random stack of magazines and added them to my Rav library, and drooled on my just arrived @muststashsheep Woodstock yarn with 20! stripes.

100 Days of Making: Day 119

#day119 of #100daysofmaking: I haven't posted knitting in nearly a month. I have been knitting but not nearly as much as I wish I could. My probably carpal tunnel keeps flaring and I am trying to limit my knitting time (and my yoga) due to pain in my wrists. I would rather do small amounts of knitting and rest every day or two then push it and end up in so much pain that I can't knit at all (or pick up the kids, or type my documentation at work, or do things around the house.... Wait, I can live without the household chores). This is my third Hitofude from @pluckyknitter Lodge Fingering. It's easy to pick up and put down, the pattern is so easy to memorize. I'm still on the sleeves and nearly done with my first (of 3) ball of yarn. It won't be finished as quickly as my first two.
