Taking a break

Hi all....

I am taking a short break from doing any serious knitting. I've been having problems with my left thumb joint that I believe is attributed to the knitting, and almost feels like tendinitis (described it to Chris last night and he agrees with me). My mom has had the same problems in the past when she has done a lot of knitting.

Of course, I am not a doctor, and neither is he, but I think that the best thing that I need to do is just give it a rest. I haven't done any knitting in about a week and it is starting to feel better. It is amazing what rest does to you! I'm almost done with a second pair of fingerless gloves, I believe that I am going to be making a pair for my friend Lyndsey, and then I am hopefully going to be making a blanket for Relay for Life as another raffle prize for someone. I also have a couple of other projects up my sleeve that I am thinking about making but am not 100% sure yet.

I will return, don't you worry.

Off-the-shoulder Sweater

I wore the off-the-shoulder sweater last night again (second time). And of course I forgot to get a picture. Oh well. Definitely next time!

Afghan completed and possible next project?

I made an afghan for the lovely Audrey Slade and her fundraiser for Relay for Life!

Here is a detail of the afghan:

However, I need an idea for next project and I think I may have found it:

A couple of weekends ago, Chris was hosting an engagement party for our friend Katy and her fiance, Chris. A bunch of Katy's friends from the Portland area were there, one of whom I found out was a knitter. Chris had the green, blue, and white afghan on his couch (Christmas present for him), and this particular friend noticed it and told her husband how much she enjoyed it. I told her that I had made it for Chris for Christmas and she said how much she liked it. She then continued to ask me questions regarding the afgan (where I found it, what kind of yarn I used, etc). A couple of days after that, she emailed me to ask me what size needles I used for it. I guess she is going to be making it! I think that this may be a compliment...

Fingerless gloves!

I had some leftover yarn from making the afghan, and a pattern was included with the yarn for some fingerless gloves. It looked interesting, so I figured I would give it a try. I have a LOT of leftover yarn from previous projects I have done, so I think it will be a good use for them.
