Phooey

I had such good intentions and I was off to such a good start. Then....

I've been busy knitting every spare minute. I've made several dog sweaters for the winter holiday season. here are some of them.

I think this one looks boyish.



There are several fancy ones for the  girls. Some have ruffles.

Some have glitz.


And some have both.


Some are in Christmas colors.

Monday evening I started knitting a pair of Christmas dolls when I started feeling some pain in my right hand. I took an aspirin and went on knitting. Tuesday the pain was worse, but I continued knitting. Yesterday I finally gave in. I recognize that I have tendonitis in my hand and the knitting is aggravating it.
So, the knitting needles have been put aside for awhile and I'm resting and icing my hand. I'm increasing my vitamin D and B complex. I'd like this to settle down so that  can get back to my knitting. In the meantime I'll try some crossstitch and see if that gets around the pain.

Those sweaters look super amazing. I especially like the glitz one. Any gal would be proud to wear it down the street.

Hey! You know what! I have the tender knife twist too and it can be very owie so I think you should take your anti swell up medicine and lay off the knitting for a bit, OK?
