My thumbs are getting old.
My thumbs aren't as supple as they once were.
Or rather, my left thumb isn't what it once was.
It would seem that my left thumb is no longer up to the rigours of that most demanding of sports.
Yup, knitting can be bad for your thumb(s).
Unfortunately, having galliantly picked up Mrs Stashbasket's sock-knitting-challenge gauntlet, this thumb of mine is just going to have to grin and bear it.
I have a deadline to meet and no achey thumb is going to stop me meeting that deadline!
Then there's the added trauma of having to buy even more delicious sock yarn.
Sounds dreadful, doesn't it?
C'mon. Join in. If you think you're hard enough ;o)
If you need any further encouragement to get knitting just feast your eyes on this.
I have an actual whole real proper day off tomorrow and all my poor befuddled knit-obsessed brain can think of is 'oooh just think of all that knitting time....'.
As if that's not enough, I will be totally childless after 4.30pm tomorrow for nearly 24 hours!
Watch out Mrs Stashbasket - I'm racing to that finish line!
My thumb may end up in physio next week but at least my feet will look pretty.
