I have encountered the bane of all yarnworkers - the dreaded RSI. I've done something to my left thumb, which makes it impossible to knit, and for a few days, it was impossible to use at all - no crochet, no spinning, no moving. I can crochet a bit now, thanks to some lovely pain gel the doctor prescribed, but knitting is probably out for a few more weeks at least. I tried spinning the other day and it was also painful, so I shall put off doing that until I'm sure healing has progressed.
This is very sad, because I have just joined a fibre club and gotten my first instalment of the lovely stuff. The club is Thylacine and the fibre is Corriedale. It's so pretty! I can't wait to spin it.
