Knitting my way through life

Christmas crunch pain

I've been pretty much knitting constantly since I got home on Saturday. My hands are killing me. My thumb was actually bleeding when i stopped knitting tonight. Guess I didn't have as good a callus built up as I thought I had.

The biggest show for all the knitting I've been doing is Brian's satchel. It's been felted, has dried for over a day, and is ready to assemble now.

Pre-felting:

post-felting, ready to dry:


This was my first time felting...and it was really cool! I'll be assembling that in the morning.

I have two thirds of the base for MancalaMia done plus six of the 14 cups knitted. I should have taken pictures of them...but I was tired of looking at them.... Hopefully I can get other six small cups, two big cups, and the rest of the base knitted and felted tomorrow, plus dried and assembled in time to ship them (plus satchel) out on Thursday. I just might go crazy.

After that I have to finish Jill's Branching Out and Mom's Bristow.

I'm starting to think this isn't going to happen. Especially if the joints in my hands don't start feeling better. My thumb I can put a band aid on, but there's not much I can do about the joints :(

Let's hope things start looking up with my Christmas knitting....
