First of all, let me say Thank You to those of you who wrote me such thoughtful comments on my last post! I am finally knitting again (and typing), and much to my relief it seems that the wrist/upper arm pain was caused not by the knitting but by the daily, repeated lifting of heavy wood and my wheelbarrow! We have a large house heated entirely by wood, and during those super-cold months I was stocking the wheelbarrow sometimes twice daily, and loading wood throughout the day. My husband works about 40 minutes away, so I figured why waste his time when he's home-- I can get the wood myself. And I have been, for about 2 months. Now it's his turn after all, I guess! Such a relief to not have to blame my knitting! With less lifting going on, my wrists and arms can easily handle knitting and typing again.
Sooo that brings us to this post: since I haven't been getting much new stuff made, I thought I would post an oldie but very goodie. This was the first sweater I knit for myself, and at that time (about 3 years ago) I decided to make it worth the effort and invested in 9 balls of Noros Silk Garden 228. I looove this sweater and I love to wear it in the spring and fall, especially. Aaaaah Noro... This is from Jane Ellison's Naturally Noro.
