I haven’t made a lot of progress this week mostly because I somehow hurt my shoulder. I woke up Tuesday morning and it was achey and stiff. By Wednesday I couldn’t move. I actually had to call in sick to work because of my inability to move. Since Thursday, though, my shoulder has continued to be painful but I have been able to move. I’m hoping that by the end of this weekend, I’ll be back to my as-close-to-normal-as-possible self.

But enough about that, I did cast on a knit washcloth for the dishcloth a week Rav group. I was hoping for a crochet cloth but – oh well. Win some, lose some *grins*

I have also made some progress on the wristlet purse I made before. I’m working through some design quirks in hopes to have a good pattern by the end of next week.

    Oh no, sorry to hear about your shoulder, I have to admit mine gets like that if I crochet alot, not knitting though.  My Hubby always says it's a sign!

    Oh no! Sorry that you've had a bum shoulder this week! I hope it starts to feel better and you can get back into the groove of things.

    So sorry to hear about your shoulder and hope it continues to improve.  Glad to see it didn't totally stop you from creating though!

    You're making good progress with your list.  You poor thing – watch that shoulder problem or it might get worse !!  I've just been told today that I have a cataract growing on 'my good eye' so I'm hoping it won't progress too quickly. New glasses should keep me going ok for another 12 months.  Don't know what I'd do if I couldn't crochet !!!!!  Take care.  xoxox

    Sorry to hear about your shoulder! Don't overdo if it's sore.
    Do you have a pattern in mind for your lacy table runner? I'm looking forward to seeing that.
    Take it easy, though, until you feel better!
