No Knitting Because of Shoulder Pain

Sorry that I haven't had much to post lately.  About mid-May, I began to experience severe shoulder pain.  I wasn't sure if it was bursitis, arthritis, or a pinched nerve or something wrong with my rotator cuff.

I had to wait about a month to see a specialist, but I glad that I did go to the doctor to see what was going on.  It turns out that I have Shoulder Impingement Syndrome or sometimes called, Rotator Cuff Tendinitis.  The doctor had x-rays taken and he said that the shoulder and the surrounding area looks healthy.  He doesn't think that I have a torn rotator cuff, but he thinks that do have inflammation involving the rotator cuff.  He thinks that it will resolve itself with some physical therapy.  Anything...just so that I can get back to knitting.

Just because I can't knit doesn't mean that I can't look at knitting patterns and other knitting related things.

I came across this baby sweater set today:  

Petit Chou (Free Baby Knitting Pattern)   and Knit Picks is having a sale on their knitting needles.

I think that I really like the Sunstruck Needles.  I just wish that they had a better photograph of these needles.

Have a Happy & Safe 4th of July everyone!
