So, remember the needlepoint I just finished and how I was excited about how quickly the project had gone so I was going to start another? Remember how I'd said my arm was so sore from the repetitive motion of pulling the tread through the mesh? Apparently, I did not remember that until I started the newest one. It didn't take long to remind myself. Ouch.
So I decided to focus on knitting instead.
But it's too hot to knit. And since I'm spending most of my time outside on the deck because there's no TV or internet... and it's been 95 degrees and crazy humid.... It's just too hot to knit.
So what do you do when it's too hot to knit and your arm feels like you've had six flu shots in one day?
You begin a giant, single granny square, stash busting blanket. Of course you do!
Although I had to resort to Google's help to remind myself how to start a granny square, the project was going well. It was going well until I remembered that I'd stopped crocheting years and years ago because it irritates my carpal tunel so badly. A few stitches and I can't even pick up a pencil for a week.
In other words, it was going well until my arm fell off.
