Another Saturday Night and I Ain't Got No Knitting...Cha Cha Cha

I've injured my wrist. Too much knitting, gaming, texting and did I mention I type for a living?? My thumbs are killing me so I'm going down the icy road (ice wrist wraps) and have given up knitting, texting and gaming for awhile. Geez who knew my life was so wrapped up in those three things, and it's killing me! I can do without gaming for awhile, if I must. I can ease up on texting, (egads), but putting down knitting has forced me to do something I have given up for awhile.

I must shamefully confess I am now reading novels. Yep it's trash reading time, since I can't create lovely things from my needles, I'll just mess up my mind with trashy books ('cause I don't want to do anything that will expand my mind -lol-), and since I am a shameless Sci Fi/Fantasy addict, guess what shelves I've been cruising at Borders. Catching up on a few series like Kelly Armstrong's Men of the Other World (trust me I've read them all-not  trashyat all but it popped up first in my mind); Outlander by Diana Gabaldon ( some of that should be read with feet in cold water or wrists -smiles-) and Alex Archer Rouge Angel series (yep I said series...yeah I'm ashamed but entertained!) It's not replacing knitting, but I do what I must so that I can continue to knit, swear, rip back, re-knit, lose my place, short row by accident, look blankly into space and wonder how the heck did I knit that, forget the instructions, look for the instructions, try to wipe coffee off the instructions, run off another copy of the instructions, drop a stitch, repeat...Yep I'm a knitter and not a quitter. (and just abit off balanced) -smiles-

Sorry you can't knit. Looking at patterns and planning your next project is always fun while you are recuperating. Reading is good too. I never have enough time for both.

I hope you're ache-free enough to knit soon :D

I have a suggestion for an author for you to read. Have a little look at Sara Douglass. She's an amazing Australian author of fantasy novels. I actually fall into them and can't get out until I've finished :)
