I think I'm fired..I have started 2 more projects... Roll Eyes

Silly me...

One is the Lil Monkey Afghan and Hat from HH for my cousin...her baby is due in September.  The other is an afghan that I started, but I may just rip it out and make something else with the yarn...I'm bored of the pattern already and I've only done about 5 rows...that's probably a bad sign of things to come.

Hi there!  Just wanted to say I haven't posted in a while because of two reasons.  One, I was trying to finish up a felted bowl for a swap (made the entire thing in like 4 hours this weekend!).
Two, I've had to stop crocheting for about 2 weeks because I seem to have developed a mild case of CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome).  I quit crocheting cuz I didn't want to inflame it worse.  My hand and wrist are now in a lovely brace though, so I'll try to finish up that last doily then move on to the other unfinished projects that are not crochet!
I'm really not slacking...promise...just didn't want to make my wrist worse and risk long-term damage or future muscle loss.

Frogs have it easy...they can eat what bugs them!

Sorry to hear about the CTS. Crochet with the braces on, but make sure you still do stretches and stuff with the brace off.

All in all, taking care of yourself is more important than finishing a project Smiley


Update on mine:

Almost done the froufrou! I have 8 rows left on the last front panel, then stitch it up and add trim! Whew!

Everything else hasn't been touched.  Roll Eyes
