Update

Sorry it's been a while since I last posted but life is very busy as I guess it is for everyone. I will keep this post relatively short only because we have a busy day today but will post more about knitting and some photos of knitted objects next time.

I have done it again and joined another Mystery Lace KAL I guess I just can't help myself. You can check it out here if you want to join entries close on the 7th April so you need to hurry if you want to join.

I haven't decided what yarn I will be using but it will most likely be Zephyr and I want to use beads again as I loved knitting with bead in MS3.

I bought some wonderful Malabrigo to knit a scarf for my dear friend who has breast cancer. I have never knitted with this yarn before. It's really a beautiful soft and squishy yarn gives great stitch definition not unlike Rowan Cocoon really but without the mohair silkiness . Very nice yarn I will be using it again..... I love it.
Here's a photo of my hand with the hand support that the specialist made for me I have to wear this everyday for 6 weeks. It seems to have helped to get the swelling down but I still get the pain..... he did tell me that there is nothing they do to help with the arthritis pain. He also mentioned that they get at least 3 people a week with this problem.


I have also bought some EZ books. I love her style of writing. Last night from Schoolhouse Press I ordered some un spun Icelandic yarn for the Pi Shawl and the book.... The Opinionated Knitter as I want to knit the BSJ for a colleague at work who is expecting a baby.

That's it for today. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Happy knitting and warm yarn hugs to all.

I hope the brace does the trick.

I thought about joining that mystery KAL, but since I haven't finished the other 2 yet I think I will sit this one out. I will just enjoy watching your progress.
