When I got the chance to really focus on this sweater, it seemed to fly off my needles. I thought to myself, “I can have the body done by Wednesday! I could model it for a blog post.” Sadly, as you can see by the incomplete sweater body in the photo, things didn’t go according to plan. Earlier this week my left hand became achey and unhappy so I’ve been trying to avoid knitting too much. It’s not fun. I think the issue is that my hands get really stiff when they get cold and then I strain the muscles in my hand by marathon knitting like that. This is the second time I’ve had sore hands, and both times the discomfort has shown up after doing a lot of knitting in a cold room. I need to be more mindful so it doesn’t happen again!
