Inch by Inch, Row by Row…

… I’m going to make this blanket grow :)

I’m still taking things very carefully, knitting-wise. I think I’ve finally reconciled myself to the need to check in with a medical person about my frequently resurgent RSI/muscle-achy-terribleness (technical term ;) ), because even though I’m trying to minimize my keyboard time and other repetitive activities, I can still feel the twingey pain coming on pretty quickly.

Despite all of that, a row or two each day is happening! Just so that my hands don’t forget knitting altogether, and because it’s good for my mental health.

I’m inching along on the medium green stripe, and still LOVING how this blanket looks.

It also FEELS pretty wonderful. Squishy and drapey at the same time, just enough warmth but not too much.

I can definitely see more of these blankets in my future! A perfect relaxing project for an evening at home, with the bonuses of fun opportunities to play with colour and (obviously) an amazing blanket at the end :) Even though a wool blanket seems pretty seasonally inappropriate, I’m glad this is what’s on my needles.

What are you knitting these days? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. I’ve recently developed pregnancy-onset carpal tunnel. Apparently it’s a thing and I had to go be weird and get it. Thankfully, it’s not painful but the numbness in three of my four fingers on my left hand is…..odd. Luckily, it’s my left hand so it’s just holding the needles and doesn’t have to function too much.

    When I was younger, I had something called repetitive stress syndrome, which caused lots of pain and it was from years of drumming and piano. Braces were worn, it sucked…

    Also, I think I love that blanket :)

    • Wow, pregnancy-related carpal tunnel sounds brutal!! Even though you’re still able to knit, how annoying… I hope it subsides! I can totally imagine how drumming and piano could cause pain, too. I’m hoping that generally being more aware of my body and listening to its cues will help (along with some hand and wrist yoga a friend sent me) :)

      YAY I’m glad you like the blanket too! Thank you!!

  2. It is looking amazing, Sarah! I love the green gradients, this is totally something we would have in our home.

  3. I’m glad you are able to knit a row or two. It’s very pretty. Love that teal colour. I’m knitting socks from wool I bout at your lovely shop there Berhive wool shop : )

    • Thank you so much Carla! I’m loving all the greens, too, and I’m grateful that I can manage even a little knitting :) Ooh I bet your socks are wonderful! Beehive has some great sock yarns.
