'A Bit Of This and A Bit Of That' is a very good title for this weeks work.
A YOP post.
A YOP post.
Here we have a bit of freeform crochet that started off as one scrumble, and quickly progressed into three more scrumbles trying to match the first. They are not exact replicas, but near enough for me and this project.
And then I got to stitch some hexies together, which turned out just fine, with
6 of these:
and 6 of those:
Things will start to get more intense for me on the hexies soon as the numbers for each 'round' increase and it will look like I'm 'stuck' in one place as I work on, and build up the required numbers of a particular colourway.
Both of the above projects were done early in the week and nothing has
been done since Thursday, because on Thursday morning I woke up as normal,
but soon found that I was in severe pain if I moved.
My shoulder injury (from 8 years ago) had reappeared while I slept, probably because I did a fair bit of gardening on Wednesday.
I did not want to believe that my shoulder tendons had snapped again. It was the same extreme pain as the first time. So painful that it made me sick, but of course then I had to move. I just couldn't win.
Luckily for me the pain subsided a little bit through the day, and now, 4 days later, it's eased up enough for me to realize that the tendons are probably not fully snapped, but a bit damaged.
Since my accident I have been getting recurring pain if the shoulders get any sort of a workout,
but Thursdays pain was the worst since the original damage.
Hopefully I will continue to improve, and I'll have to keep reminding myself that I do not have the same strength anymore and take into account my physical limitations.
Ah well, such is life.
And I'll end here with a laugh-out-loud (I must laugh or I'd cry).
