Been Feeling a Little Blue.

I haven't been able to knit, crochet, embroidery or any other handcraft for weeks and it's getting me down ... and made me whiny too.

Earlier in the month I was diagnosed with De Quervain's Stenosing Tenosynovitis. Needless to say I can't pronounce it and have been telling people I have tendonitis or handing them the brochure I received at the Indiana Hand Center in Indianapolis.

I've had a steroid shot in my wrist and I'm wearing my splint faithfully but dang it still hurts and I don't return to the doctor until May 20th. That was the whiny part in case you didn't recognize it. =)

While I can't knit I may try to make earrings this weekend just to see if I'm able. Farmer's Market season is almost upon us and I haven't the inventory I thought I would have already built up.

Hmmm, wonder if I could dye yarn in small batches using mostly my right hand ......

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. I gave Daddy my bunny hutch plans Monday morning!

hopefully your wrist/thumb can improve w/out surgery. sounds painful and after reading about it, i can see why knitting, crochet, etc. are out of the question. maybe you need to buy a knitting machine.

Oh, no! That sounds awful! I hope with rest it will get better! I think petting a bunny would probably help! ; )

Your blog is lovely! Thanks for visiting mine and hope that your wrist is back to normal real soon. It must be hard not to be able to do what you love so much.

Hi, I know what you are going through with DSTV I had it in 1997, it was truly awful. I ended up having the operation having suffered for almost a year. I was given anti-inflammatory pills which I found out I had an allergy to. It will get better, honest, just don't give up. I look forward to reading of your recovery. Keep crafting and keep smiling.
Best wishes, Linda
