My wrists don’t like me.

First off, I have amended the asterisk glitch in the last post. I suppose I got a bit ahead of myself, as usual.

Secondly, I cannot stop doing crossword puzzles. Not when I have other things, but when I finish my work I keep taking crossword puzzles to bed instead of going right to sleep. This could be why I currently have an enormous headache that I can’t explain. Nine years of past experience that Not Sleeping Enough = Headache should tell me something, hmm??

It is probably better to skip over the “logic” discussion at this point. Logic is a choice, and I’ll have to live with the consequences of not making that choice.

The past few days have been fairly productive in terms of my knitting, but not much else.

I have finished the sleeves of the Equestrian Blazer (Interweave Knits Winter 2007 Issue), and started the left front.

The end is in sight, but this project continues to move slowly. I am currently in the library without anything else to knit, but as soon as I go back to the room I am putting it aside for a few days. My wrists and hands are objecting with increasing urgency, and I don’t want to injure myself.

So close…yet so far.

One other thing that I finished nearly finished the other day is this:

Finished sock minus +/- 6 rows and finishing.

It is finally time to be productive. Now that it is getting dark, anyway. I lazed about all day today, just waiting for the mood to strike. I know, bad idea.  Right?

The problem with half of my life is that I cannot work when it is sunny.  I find bright sunlight to be severely overstimulating, and it gives me an enormous headache.  I woke up early feeling like someone had used an axe to split open my skull and inserted bricks, then closed the blinds and did crosswords until 4pm.

I’m trying not to look at it as a waste of time…

    Thanks for your advice on fitting the sock! I kept going to the 7 3/4″ shown in the chart, did the toe and the ends, and it fits perfectly. I’ve got about 2″ done on the second sock.

    I just finished…well…sort of finished this sweater and it seems that something is terribly wrong with my sleeves fitting with the rest of the sweater, please inform me if you have had this same experience. Better luck! Carrie
