Finishing Up… And Start Again :D

I have to say that I am surprised with how well orange and blue combined together. I could see how it could appeal babies — the vibrant orange contrasted with calming blue, will the definitely catch one’s attention.

This is a plainer version of Rowan’s pattern called Silver. I think the pattern is very basic and quite easily be modified according your liking. So I think why don’t I try the same pattern, with different colour combo?

So, I checked my stash, and found a white DK yarn. Same brand, and same weight too, so I expect they are the same gauge as well. How about trying white and blue?

I was considering orange and white too, I think it would make a cute colour combination. Maybe after this one?

Although, i suspect this one would take a while to finish 😦 my left hand is now starting to tingle, and the fingers are a little bit stiff and slightly painful when i force it to grab and squeeze. So for a couple of days ahead, I would have to take it easy with my knitting. Maybe it is a good time to go back to the crochet top and clean the extra yarn again… ugh…

I feel old when things like this happen… I wish I could knit all day and all night without injuring myself.

  1. Oh my goodness, love the colors! I find the circular needles bother my hands too. I made my shawls on straight needles for that reason and was able to knit without pain. I think it’s the way the pinky finger has to curl and hold the yarn/project. Maybe have another project on straight needles going at the same time and switch off to give your hands a rest from the circular ones. The sweater is just lovely.

    • Is that true? Oh… I shall change it to straight needles then. I thought circular needles are friendlier to wrists because they are lighter.
      And thank you, Olivia. I hope they like it 🙂

    It’s time for a break. That’s why I got a sewing machine a few years ago. You could also try: getting a knitting loom, making jewelry, baking blueberry muffins, or making stuffed peppers. You could even do all of it! I recommend the blueberry muffins and stuffed peppers. No wrist or arm action (except a little stirring here and there, but just keep your wrist stiff). Pepper stuffing is an ergonomically-friendly activity.

    listen to your hands! When they ache, it means you’ve done too much!
    Or . . . you might want to try some crafters mittens. I’ve got several pairs of Handeze mittens which I wear for crafting and they help, but not during the summer months as hands get too hot.
