Knitting keeps me sane…

And lately I’m going a bit crazy.

To make a very long story short, we adopted a 10 year old beagle mix sight unseen just before he was to be put down at the pound. Turns out he’s a puppy in old man clothing and is requiring a lot of medical attention.

He’s a cutie, but it’s been a lot of work and stress. If you’re feeling extra generous today you can help donate to a portion of his care here.

This has all been extra stressful because I haven’t been able to knit much if at all. Knitting is usually how I diffuse stress in my life, and it’s so frustrating that my wrist hurts to much to do it. I’m in the process of trying a few home remedies for it, and so far so good, but it’s slow going.

I did manage to add the second color to my Summer Scarf though. Since it’s been taking so long I feel like I keep missing opportunities to wear it, but I guess it’s more wearable than some of the woollies I have.

What are you knitting that helps you de stress?
