Work in Progress Wednesday

So the last three weeks have gone pretty quickly.  I went back to the doctor yesterday for a check up on my finger.  The sprains are healing well and I'm on to phase two of the process.

These are called bands and it is 24x7, take them off only to do the exercises three times per day.  Typing is a bit difficult.  Knitting is tough but I think it will get easier.  After three weeks of not bending a joint, it doesn't like to do that.  I'm considering knitting to be physical therapy.  It just might take some building up.  Oh, and yes, it does hurt.  The doctor said that "you must not confuse healing and pain."  So a little pain is necessary.  Actually I'm feeling much better about the prospects.

In the meantime my socks are slowly progressing.  I also did some swatching this weekend for some new designs.  Thank you all for your encouragement on my hat design.

You know the drill  - check out Tami's to see lots of great projects.


  1. Ouch! Hope they heal well and knitting can commence full time.

  2. Certainly, knitting counts as physical therapy! I hope your healing continues at a good pace.
