Knitting Injuries

So the knitting rush caused by the holidays has finally come to a end for 2010 and my hands are glad for it. It's quite embarrassing to have to wear braces on my wrists during this time...never admitting that the injuries are knitting related. I simply tell people it's from doing too many push-ups, or from climbing Everest in my down time. You know, the usual things I like to do (serious eye rolling occurring on the other side of the computer at the moment). But yet I continue on, knitting more and more projects just not in the psychotic mode I was attempting only a few days ago. Now I look to not only knitting but new projects that my mind is reeling for. I just ordered a sewing machine that should be showing up by next week. Finally I am attempting to work past my horrid memories of home-ec in middle school when my teacher had to have a parent/teacher conference just to discuss the fact that I couldn't sew a straight line for the life of me. Then around 10 years ago I decided I wanted to try to quilt. Half way through the quilt I noticed that the squares weren't exactly lining up. In tears, I ripped it apart and have yet to sew again. My family is already asking for me to start whipping up clothes, curtains, and many other things.... things that weren't really on the to-do list once the sewing machine arrives but I guess any practice is good. Hopefully I can work out the straight line issue and start bringing the multiple ideas I have had for years to life. A crafty adventure I can't wait to get started on. Beware People! Crazy crafty ideas are coming up ahead!
