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.
