Trigger Finger Troubles
Another week of minimal knitting
My trigger finger did not completely heal with the first cortisone shot, so I received another on Monday. Although the first one didn’t heal my trigger finger, it did help, so the doctor is hopeful that the second one will work. Even though I wasn’t able to knit for a couple days, I did get some knitting done this week.
The main thing I worked on this week is my Volt Shawl, pictured at the top of this post. It is a simple lace-weight shawl, with a gradient of grays. It is going to take me forever to knit it, but I am hoping it will be very wearable when I finish it! I am using the Isager yarn called for in the pattern. It a wooly yarn and I love it! I am also very glad to be finished with the black. While it is a simple pattern, the stitches were hard to see in the black and I kept having to tink back because of missed increases. The next color is still dark gray, but at least I can see the stitches.
Attaching a pom pom
One of the things I finished this week was to add a pom pom to my new design. I have been hearing how people are using buttons to attach pom poms, but hadn’t quite tried it until this week. I just pulled the strings that were attached to the pom pom through the button holes, tied them into a bow and tucked the ends around the edge of the button. It worked like a charm! I am very excited at how easy this is!! I will most definitely be using this method for a removable and easy to attach pom pom in the future!
Today was one of those beautiful Colorado days where I could sit outside with my Atelier sweater and and enjoy the sun with my iced tea! I was actually able to sit outside both yesterday and today and knit! I am thankful for both the warm weekend weather and the ability to knit again!
Wishing those of you who celebrate Easter, a very wonderful holiday with your family!
