This weekend was relaxing and I had a huge epiphany. You know the kind that just stops you in your tracks. I was knitting madly yesterday on socks for my daughter and made such significant progress, but you see it came at a cost. Both of my forearms are hurting. Especially my left arm-so, I am easing up on my self imposed (prison) goals. I value my knitting time that continues to be my inexpensive therapy for when I dabble in anxiety.
Today I did not knit all day until meeting friends for knitting. Even then I took it easy. I am also having a mild flare up of my arthritis so I'm hoping that in a few days I will be good as new. Until then, I am NOT knitting three pairs of socks for Christmas day. One pair seems doable. In over thirty years of knitting I have manage to not be sidelined by a knitting injury, I aim to keep my lucky streak going.
My husband cooked dinner today so after knitting I had delicious curry and then tackled the dishes. My chores for today are done. I even managed to wrap up some presents!! On Wednesday our son will be home!
It has been drizzly and drippy outside all day long. If only it was ten degrees colder we could be looking a flakes...
How was your weekend?
