Repetitive strain injury. Arses.
Well, it's the start of RSI, the initial twinges. Bought on, I think, by that paid work I was doing involving lots and lots of intricate cables in a 'no give' yarn. Needless to say I'm not doing that job any more! Even a small amount of knitting in lovely soft wool brings on the aching :(
And so for the special project I'm being kind to my wrists, in the hope they'll be back to normal sooner rather than later.
