Back to Basic Knitting

As some of you may have read from my previous blog, I sustained some serious burns to both of my hands on Christmas Eve while removing hot pies from the oven.

This has certainly stifled my knitting projects a bit, & I was so looking forward to kicking back a bit after all the hustle & bustle of the holidays & sitting back & just knitting. Ha! This plan didn't work out so well.

The doctors at the burn treatment center have encouraged me to get back to my knitting sort of as therapy. I've been trying, but it's sort of like trying to knit while wearing oven mitts! Ah....there's an idea! I probably should have had oven mitts when I was baking those pies! (I was using pot-holders instead.)

I'm really yearning to get back into knitting, so I think I'm going to try a basic simple dishcloth. Thank goodness for the humble little dishcloth.

That must of been pretty scary that you burned your hands.

Let us know how that dishcloth turns out, the one made "while wearing oven mitts." We can laugh about this, but your burns certainly were no laughing matter.

So sorry to hear of your accident! Feel better soon.

How about using broomsticks and roving and knit a rug? I'm only half kidding. At one of the fiber fairs I saw a vendor selling broom stick needles, I think they were US size 50. No kidding. Continue to get better. Renate

Hope you continue to get better! It must be so difficult and we use our hands so much.

Gosh I had no idea you had been burned! Now I feel really bad for not reading my 360 more. I am so, so sorry that you had to go thrue that. I do hope you will be back to knitting and life as soon as possible. Robin
