Timeline of an Injury

2:14 pm: "Yay! A crocheted jute bowl! My hands are a little tired, but that was pretty easy."
4:38 pm: "Hmmm. What's that tingling?"
6:20 pm: "Ok, so my right hand is a little sore."
7:51 pm: (picking up Sockapalooza sock) "Ouch. Maybe I'll read."

Next day, 8:23 am: "(whimper)"

Sorry about your hand, crochet does that sometimes. Take a well-deserved book break. I love the turquoise and pink, they're really the colors of summer.

Okay, I was already suspicious of crochet, but now that I know it causes injury, I am just baffled by it!

Love the summery collage!

Oh...ow! The bowls are beautiful, but perhaps you should work on something soft and cuddly now. Didn't someone come out with aromatherapy or lotion-infused yarn recently? I swear I heard that -- you definitely deserve some!
