Has it really been two weeks?? I'm sorry for the prolonged absence, but in an effort to clear up this tendinitis flareup I've been strictly no-knitting since the last time I posted. I finally let myself try knitting a little bit yesterday, and I'm feeling all right. Not quite 100% yet, but it felt really good to get a few rows in.
I wish I could say I've been using the time I would have spent knitting the past two weeks wisely, but mostly I've been messing around online and wishing I could knit. I did manage to read a few books and get ahead on my goal for the year (here's my Goodreads profile, if you want to be friends).
My plan is to keep taking it slow on the knitting front for this week—two weeks is a long break, and while I'm eager to get back into some long knitting sessions, I know my thumbs are still a bit weak and inflamed and need to be treated gently.
