|Tea Time - Kathrin Ellison|
I have been trying to do a lot of different things lately to get the thumb bending like it needs to do. The biggest challenge is finding something that I can do easily at a given time. With my thumb I have had to be very careful lately so that I don't overdo anything that I have been doing. The good news is each day I am seeing progress on how the thumb is feeling and even bending.
The one project that I have found that works most days is my petit point that I picked up at the NeedleWorkers Marketplace in April. As you can see I really don't have a lot more to do so will need to figure out something else that works well once this is done. After I fill in the area you can see I have 10 rows at the top and bottom to fill in with the pink and then the project is done. I am happy to see the progress that I have made on this project but also sad to see if coming to the end.
I have also found that I can crochet some which is helping as well because I am one of those people that has to have a few projects on the go at once. I have only been working on granny squares since getting back to working some without the splint on. My knitting needles haven't been used much since I hurt my thumb but hope that in the next couple of weeks I will be able to get to knitting as well.
Now to try and figure out what project will work for the next little while as I work on getting the thumb to bend to 90 degrees again. It's been two weeks since I starting using the thumb a bit without the splint and so far so good. Now to remember that I need to take it easy sometimes so that I don't overdo it.
Time for some tea.
