That would be me, and that would be what I am lacking right now. At least on my right hand.
I had been experiencing increasing pain in my right thumb and wrist over the past couple of weeks. I started to notice it when I was doing laundry. Picking the wet clothes up out of the washer was painful (and not in the "I really dislike doing laundry" type of way). Since I wasn't really experiencing it any other time I just blew it off. Then I started to notice that I was having a hard time opening jars and my hand would get tired quickly while knitting.
Last weekend I hit a (figurative) wall with the pain. I actually had to stop knitting completely; it was just too painful. I decided it was time to go see my doctor.
My suspicions were confirmed. I have severe tendonitis in my right wrist/thumb. As such I have two new best friends, my brace and my ice pack. The brace I get to wear 24/7 until I go back to the doctor on the 29th, and with the ice pack I get to try to achieve frostbite (OK not really, but it certainly feels that way).
This, of course, means no knitting. For a yarnaholic, like myself, this is truly depressing. I actually have to sit and watch TV without anything else to do. My hands feel naked without my beloved needles and yarn and it has only been two days.
So I have decided that I am going to purchase more books on color and textile crafts to feed my growing addiction to dyeing. If I can't actually work with my fibers I can read about cool things to do and get some ideas for when I have use of both my hands again.
