WIP Wednesday-25th October

Things have been very slow on the WIP front this week, but my arm/wrist is on the road to recovery now following a treatment from a friend. In the last couple of days I’ve managed to crochet or knit in short intervals, making sure I do the proper hand/arm exercises after each session.

I’ve completed one of the red slippers, and the other has 6 more rows to go. I’ve had to be really careful as working around the posts to make the crocodile stitches involves a lot of wrist movement. I have another pair to make, but I’m planning on alternating knit and crochet projects to reduce the strain on my wrists.


I’ve also started the second of my cable knit wrist warmers, I’ve not got very far yet but it is nice to have a small project to pick up when I don’t feel up to crocheting.


I also have a yarn delivery coming tomorrow, containing the yarn for some more slippers and a mustard colour alpaca mix to knit myself some owl mittens for winter.

What are you working on this week? How far are you with your Christmas projects? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Glad you’re feeling a bit better. Crochet is such a twisty action it can be hard on the wrists. I’m still stalled on sleeves and full swing into a show week now, so no time for anything other than eating, sleeping and acting dahling!!

  2. Hope your wrist gets better! I still have to wear a support bandage from time to time. About to start some Christmas projects this weekend, so exited to be able to start them now most of my orders are slowly dying off for now. What was the yarn you mentioned in mustard that you’ve ordered? I need a nice mustard lol! Hope your doing well x

  3. I’m glad your wrist is getting better, what an excellent friend you have! The slippers are a fabulous red šŸ™‚
    I’ve nearly finished my two blankies so they’ll definitely be ready for posting tomorrow, hooray! But I’ve still only made the three pokemon for my brother’s Christmas present; I really must get a move on.

  4. You naughty, naughty girl!
    You know full well that resting your wrist meant WRESTING altogether. Not resting for a couple of hours and a few more later on while you’re asleep.
    Please take care Mrs.C. I’m really concerned about you and your wrist. I think you’re going to end up with a very serious case of RSI if you don’t listen and do what’s required right now. I don’t want to see you in agony and not able to work or even cook a meal at home.
    Go back to your doctor and ask for some physio, urgently.
    In the meantime … alternate between warm compresses, then cold. Keep doing that for a couple of hours, when the pain is bad.
    Please be careful my fabulous blogging friend.
    Sending you oodles of love ~ Cobs. xxx


    1. I promise I am looking after it, the massage has helped immensely and the wrist support I bought has been very useful. If I suffer any more I shall seek more help (my friend has promised to take another look when we meet up again in a week or so too!) I am very lucky to have such good friends, and it is sweet that you are concerned. I’m being super careful to not overdo it and to make sure I do my exercises for knitters and crocheters! X

  5. I had used a mini pillow, and cut slits in all sides of two hand towels. And while tying them together around the mini pillow, i also weaved in christmas hard garland. It came out so pretty. Someone had created that gift for me years before using felt instead of towels. Only thing is I have wrists and hand issues like that unto carpal or tendonitis, and would like to complete more of these for friends but the cutting with the scissor and tying motion did a number on my hands and wrists. Please share what those exercises are which you do in btwn knitting. Hopefully it will help me!
