Baby, It's Cold Outside

Dear Mandella,

We're in the midst of a major winter storm. It looks like we have about 9 inches of snow on the ground at the moment, and more is pouring on.

I was home from work on Monday due to being ill (stomach virus), and then today I was sort of OK and sort of not, but I didn't go anywhere on account of the weather.

The good news is that I finished the last of my Christmas knitting (a scarf for a nephew). As I was going through and organizing my knitting nest I found four balls of a soy/wool blend that I'm knitting into a simple scarf just for the sake of having some no-brainer knitting at hand.

The bad news is that I seem to have developed "tennis elbow" or some such tendonitis from a combination of lots of knitting and lots of computer work (i.e., using the mouse). My doctor said to rest it for 2 - 3 weeks. Is he crazy or what? :)

Hope you're warm & happy.

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. At least the weather helped you out with some snow :) It's too warm here in DC, so all our precip is rain (and lots of it!) Congrats on finishing your Christmas knitting!

Oh no, I am worried about your elbow. Please try to rest. You need to knit and I need to read about it. Are there huge snow drifts outside your house??
