10 January 2007


My carpal tunnel surgery is scheduled for Friday. After, I'll have a big old bandage on my wrist for 10 days. Ick. So today I made myself a wrist cozy from some leftover Noro.
It should come in particularly handy (Hah! Pun not intended!) because it's supposed to get down near 20F for several nights. I know, that's no big deal to most of you, but to those of us in California that sounds Arctic. I've lived here for 14 winters and it's never been that cold. So my poor hand will be warm and stylish.
And yes, I fully realize the irony of knitting something to cover my carpal tunnel bandages.

Many good thoughts for the surgery today!!

And you do indeed have my weather sympathy. For starters, I don't think Californian houses are really designed for winter, unlike up here in the Great White north. So 20F there is more like 0F here!

That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

Heal well. I like your hand cosy!
