So, I’m a day late. Such is life. Thanks so much to everyone for your advice on my sore wrists and hands last week! I switched to hats for the week and I think the change has really helped. I still have some soreness in a couple of my finger joints, but otherwise I’m doing pretty well.
I mailed off my second box for the year to Warm Woolies on Monday. Nestled inside was the cardigan coat I made recently as well as 17 pairs of socks, bringing my mailed off total to 34. Warm Woolies is still holding their contest until November 30 and in reading the fine print the other day it says you can be eligible for $50-$75 worth of prizes if you knit 25 items for them by that date. What a nice little bonus, though I am certainly not doing it for the prizes :)
The hats above bring my total of finished items up to 42 for the year and I am currently working on item #43 (another hat). After that I think I may try to make a couple vests and see how long they take me. Then, maybe back to socks. I’ll keep you posted.
It’s beginning to feel like fall here already and though I thought I was ready for it, I don’t think I really am. I’m wondering if we may be in for a long winter…… I feel like hibernating!
