Idle Hands

Knitting Break

I haven't been knitting much these days
due to tremendous finger pain.
I attributed my pain to
too much knitting at Christmas time or perhaps tendinitis. 

Unfortunately, my pain did not go way.
Eventually I was diagnosed with ganglion cysts 
on my right index and middle finger 
tendon sheaths.

(Hmmm, do you think this could be caused from
too much knitting and
too much time on the computer mouse?)

I'm having hand surgery tomorrow.
Since I'm right handed,
I will be out of commission for awhile.

I hope to be back in a few weeks.

Good luck with the surgery. Hope your recovery time is short so you can get back to knitting soon!

So sorry to hear about your hands. I know how much you love to knit. I have just started spinning. Maybe you should consider that. It is so much fun.
