Have you ever knit a hole in your finger? I just did.
Riddari is to blame. I spent so much time fighting with that cast on and the first few rows that I managed to injure the top of my finger. I'm a continental knitter who has the bad habit of using the top of my finger to push on the left hand needle to slip the stitches over. Using a sharp metal needle can do a lot of damage without you realizing it. After putting on some antibiotic ointment and a bandaid I slipped on an old brace I had from the thumb in the car door adventure to remind myself not to use it for a while and to keep that darn bandaid in place. Finger tips are hard to bandage.
That meant no knitting and no other needlework for a few days so what to do? Crochet. I worked on more squares for Audun. I admit to getting very twitchy about not knitting. Nothing else really seems to take its place.
