No, not THAT kind.
The really-lousy-work-in-progress-photo kind.
I’ve gotten through clue 3 and have started clue 4 of Monica’s Shawl. It’s been a fun knit so far:
And then there’s my Bias Loop:
I do have a better photo of it, from when I first started it. Well, except for the schmutz on the ball of black yarn:
I hate schmutzy balls, don’t you? o.O
Anyway, that’s what I decided to do with the yarn left over from my Mohair pullover. I decided that I didn’t really like it knit in garter stitch with the two colors held together, so it needed to be something in stockinette. This should be a simple, easy project.
After a lot of travel knitting, I’m really suffering from tennis elbow. It started when I was working on the bulky sweaters a few months ago. It was getting better until the knitting frenzy this past week. I guess I’m going to have to go on a knitting diet for a little while, and see if I can nurse it back into good health. I don’t think these projects are going to be progressing much in the near future. Instead, I think there’s going to be a lot of ice and ibuprofen in my future.
Nooooo! Maybe you just need a massage or something. LOOOOOVE that color in the Monica shawl.
Oh no! And strengthening exercises, too. We just don’t seem to know when to stop as we love our knitting so.
I do my best to keep my balls from schmutziness.
Remind me to tell you something bitchy in email.
Love how that shawl is turning out! I’m so sorry about the knitting pain. I hope you can stay out of trouble long enough to heal. xo
Monica’s shawl looks amazing, even as a WIP! I can’t wait to see it blocked. I hope your elbow feels better soon!
Ow. Yeah – take care of the elbow first. The knitting can wait.
Owie! I hear yah! Knitting can definitely wait. Rest and take care of the elbow. Does that mean there are 2 people down in your house? Or is the Pontiff doing better? (I know it probably happened 10 years ago by now, but in my mind it just happened)

Those are great photos! I think an embarrassing photo would be of my knitting basket filled with half started projects just waiting for love. Sigh.
I have knitters elbow too and have had some help from an ART chiropracter. ART stands for Active Release Therapy and its very different from regular chiropractic. No cracking just manipulated stretching. Still not cured but better. Also the arm band seems to help somewhat. Good luck!
Oh, that sucks about your elbow. 😦 May you recuperate quickly!
Just last night I was looking through some of my knitting books and came across some knitter exercises in the back of The Knit Cafe. I hope you are back to feeling better soon.
