My recent blogging hiatus

Hey everyone,

How are we all? I haven't posted in 8 days......and the last time I posted about anything I made was mid-August. The sad truth is I got repetitive strain injury (RSI) of some sort. I was making far too many things, all at once- about 6 hours of crochet and knitting a day, likely without taking enough breaks. In addition, blogging was hard as typing hurt my wrists- hence the short posts too. 

Since I first started getting wrist pain I have had an almost total break from crafting for nearly a month I think I am well on the mend now. I can type ok, and do most things now (although I am still getting a bit of pain).....but I am bit scared to do much crochet too soon as I don't want another major set-back (I keep on thinking I'm ok, then do too much resulting in being back to square one!). I am therefore going to extend my crochet break for the rest of this week and see how it is by the weekend. Fingers crossed I can get going again (albeit slowly!).....AS I HAVE A CRAFT FAIR IN A MONTH ARGGGGGHHHHHH!!!! I was really excited by this but am doubting that I will be able to make enough stock in time. Oh well, there will be more. 

Its been pretty depressing at times, not being able to do the things I love to do.....but I figure a month off to make sure I get better properly is worth it rather than risking a long-term injury. I have definitely learnt a lesson!

I will leave you with a picture of one of the most beautiful cats I have ever seen (anyone know what breed he is???) who just happens to live next door :-)

He was so friendly and playful when he was a kitten but is a bit dis-interested in anything other than sleeping now.......and you can tell from his expression that he was not too happy to be disturbed by the clicking of my camera!

Much love, will keep you updated on my recovery :-)

  1. Oh no Sally, sorry to hear that. I know I would be really annoyed if I had to abstain from craft for more than one evening! Get well soon! P.S. I love the gorgeous cat.
