On a Break
Here’s my finished Aeolian. I love it! I’ve admired this pattern for a while. I was a little afraid of doing just a charted pattern, but it was actually very simple. It went fairly quick in the beginning, too, but really slowed down for those last looong rows.
And now, unfortunately, I am forced to take a knitting break as I seem to have a ganglion cyst. It’s bad enough that my wrist is achy, and I’m getting occasional tingling/numbness in my hand. I’m afraid a second bump may be forming as well. I’m hoping to get in to see a hand surgeon in the next few weeks to see about removing them as I don’t want to deal with draining it only to have it return (as they tend to do in 50% of the cases). I’m guessing surgery will put me out of commission for a week or two also.
In about a week and a half our family is off to California. It’ll be my first time back in almost 3 years, so I’m excited to get to see some old friends and perhaps check out some yarn stores that I never knew about before.
