Knit a round and a half on a pair of socks last night

Ah, so nice to pick up the needles again after surgery on my hand. I am not suppose to but only my husband saw me. I can't believe how much my hands have lost their strength. A round and a half on a pair of kilt or knee socks and I was done for the night. So will work hard at building my strength up again in my hands. I can't stop knitting, that is my life.
Have tried writing a wee bit but there again, no strength. Still can't get that right hand wet so hard to wash dishes. Oh well, they stack dirty very well. :)
Have a terrific week everyone.
And most of all, thank you so very much for all the well wishes. You have no idea how much that helps each and every day. Blessed are you all!

Glad to hear that all is going well. It's amazing what you can learn to do one handed but I wouldn't worry too much about the dishes, lol.

I have a dish washer with a food grinder in it, I no longer have to rinse off the dishes. Love that function!
Take it easy on that hand, we don't want you hurting yourself over this. Just like my hubby always tells me when I have to wear the dreaded cast for my foot. If you use it too soon, you are going to end up in worse trouble than before.
I know knitting is your life but, you need to be on vacation right now. Heal up and then you can knit away!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am concerned like Laura Neal about you using it too soon for knitting. Becareful, you don't want to aggrevate you tissues and interfere with healing correctly.
I mentioned my pain, I injured my back at work 2 years ago.Herniated a disc in my cervical spine. It's pinching my nerves, so it also affects my arms, hands and feet too, besides of course the neck, upper back and shoulder.
Because of the impingement, the specialist have said no surgery could be done, as well as do NOT Wee a chiropractor. Where the injury is, it would be too risky. So I have learned how to deal with pain, realignment and balance a life within those parameters. Of course my needle work helps me keep sane!
Wishing you a speedy recovery and happy times making the little boy quilt. The D9P on my blog is for my 4 month old grandson. Happy stitchin (when you should!).
