It's Time to Confess!

OK...I have tennis elbow,
so I thought I would get some professional treatment.
Week after week, I've looked for results.
Finally...I began to think that my summer gardening has taken toll of me.

So on one of  my visits...I told my therapist I had a confession to make.
He immediately wanted me to confide in a female therapist.
I replied that I was comfortable talking to him.
And so I asked him,
"Do you think knitting could effect my tennis elbow?"
He laughed and laughed...
"Yes, for sure!"
"But you are way to young to be knitting!"

Ah, yes..I've been knitting a car seat blanket for the new one.
My daughter chose the colors, a combination of green, yellow, and grey.
So I've been busy knitting blankets, booties and now a baby cocoon.

Oh, I can't wait for the finished results.
So I've taken some quality time away from home, to complete my projects.


  1. Wow that is gorgeous..the blanket looks pretty complicated to me! Have fun finishing your projects!

  2. That blanket looks so cozy and you are doing such beautiful work! I wonder if a salt water bath similar to epsom salt... would help that elbow?

  3. Love the colors in that baby blanket. Oye about the tennis elbow!!

  4. I love that the doctor thought you were too young to be knitting! My favourite aunt taught me to knit when I was about 14. I didn't knit for a long time, but I find it very relaxing to do if I want to "watch" a movie on TV. Just sitting there, twiddling my thumbs made me think that I could be twiddling knitting needles instead -- and so a knitter was reborn! Enjoy your projects and don't let anyone make you feel guilty for spending the time on them. xoxoxox

  5. Wow - those knitting projects are beautiful Marg! No wonder you have a sore elbow - more of me would hurt than that if I tried those projects. You crack me up with your confession. Hope your elbow feels better really soon - ouch!

  6. Ha ha! How many doctors have to deal with knitting pains! Your story brightened up my day (and your projects look quite amazing)!

  7. Beautiful pattern and colours! Hope your elbow is better soon!

  8. Oh, I love that basket weave project!

    Aha. Just as I thought. Our tennis game is on the back-burner because of your knitting! :)
