i went back to the specialist yesterday for my wrist. my tests and x-ray came back fine. he diagnosed me with focal dystonia, commonly called writer’s cramp. i just started a medicine for it, but if that doesn’t work, he recommended getting botox injections in my wrist to loosen the muscles up. i’d really rather not have to do that, so i’m crossing my fingers that the medicine works and i won’t have to do anything drastic (and expensive!) like botox. i guess we’ll see how it goes.
pattern: house slippers from knit 2 together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark
yarn: patons classic merino wool in denim marl and bright red
needles: size 15 straights and size 13 16″ circular
size: medium (women’s 7-9)
comments: first, knit 2 together was $5.50 on amazon. 80% off the cover price?! i just couldn’t resist. i got that one and knitting for peace at $4.00. i really like how the slippers turned out, but i definitely had my doubts when i was knitting them because i messed them up in various non-uniform ways. they are super comfy and they actually stay on the back of my heel, which is great. they required winding triple balls, which was an interesting experience, to say the least. it was kind of hard to photograph the red properly; sorry if it looks bad!
