This is the torturous sight that greats me in my crafty room at the moment. I love to just steal a few minutes to sit and look at my stash - it makes me feel very happy!
I cut away a bit of my cast (between the thumb and first finger) because it was annoying the crap out of me, and now i can do some knitting. It is very slow, somewhat painful knitting but at least it's knitting! I decided to knit a Thuja in Socks That Rock mediumweight because 2.75mm needles are more 'comfortable' than 2mm ones at the moment. It took about three hours of on and off knitting (not all on the same day) to get this toe-up sock to 56 stitches! The worst part is that while I am (literally) painstakingly knitting this very basic sock I can remember the feeling of meditative calm and mental freedom I used to experience while knitting and it is very frustrating (can you tell I'm not the most patient person in the world? lol). I will get over myself eventually - it's not like it's a permanent affliction for goodness skaes!
