On a Break

April 15, 2010

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.

A little update on the Sweet Eleanor pattern: 58 projects currently on Ravelry, and over $2200 has gone to Eleanor’s Medical Fund!

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.

    Wowie! That is a masterpiece! I can’t imagine the concentration on a piece like that. It is truly beautiful.

    BTW, I had one of those cysts years ago, one day it disappeared and never returned. Odd.

    No thank you! And actually my GP said that for where this cyst is, I would likely break a bone if it were whacked with a book.

    That is gorgeous! I would love to see you when you’re in Cali. I’ll try to contact you through FB, or let me know your schedule.
