Knitting hiatus

Well, my RSI was getting pretty bad last week. Not as bad as it was when it first flared up, but it was constant burning pain, and every joint clicked.

So now I have not knitted since Friday (18th November). I picked up my prescription for my anti-inflammatory gel and have been using that, and I've made contact with a chiropractor/physiotherapist. I'm not going to knit for at least a week, or maybe even until I've seen the specialist.

It's very hard not to knit, especially as I really want to make the scarves for my siblings, and I'm dying to finish Blackberry. But my long-term knitting ability is more important.

The other day I looked in a shop window and saw a Blackberry rip-off! It didn't have the cables and the bobbles on the sleeves, but other than that it was exactly the same silhouette, and fastened with a brooch. Blackberry is much nicer though, but I want to finish mine so I can go in that shop wearing it ;)

My parents brought more of my belongings down at the weekend, including the Knitty patterns I had printed out while I was at work (shhhhhhh). I've put them all in 2 lever-arch files (that's a lot of patterns! And I didn't print out the ones I didn't like!), and seperated them into 'general patterns', 'wanna make', 'wanna make soon' and 'wanna make now'!!! It's a shame I may never be able to make them though :( I shall think positive...

But what with Knitty and my Stitch'n'Bitch books, I don't think I'll ever need another knitting pattern again, LOL!
