Faeryfay's Flowers & Knits
A love of knitting, lace, crochet, flowers and gardens!

I have not knitted in four days. I know it doesn't sound like a long time, but for a hard core knitter, it is an eternity! RA is awful! It's ok if it gives me pain and trouble in my hips, knees and feet, but not my hands! The thumb joint on my left hand is swollen and sore and the wrist on my right hand is bad. My fingers are swollen and chubby from the meds and the arthritis in every joint. What a whinge I'm having today! You know, I've never really considered that one day I may not be able to knit. In fact the thought makes me want to cry. I'm going to try to knit just a few stitches today -maybe if I just pace myself and take it slow I'll be ok. I might try some crochet instead for a while. All my projects are on hold. I really want to get the Haruni done for my mum's birthday on October 2nd. I'm not sure if I'll make it on time! I'm trying to be positive and take it slow but part of me is trying to accept that perhaps I can't knit as much as I want:-(.
