Give Me Wings

I’ll need them to finish this project on time!  I lost a week of knitting time to hand/wrist issues that I think were the result of a lot of factors – I’ve upped my weights at the gym, and I think the seated rows are really hard on my wrists and forearms with the increased weight; I’ve been doing a ton of tax research lately at work, which involves massive amounts of clicking and typing – always hard on the ol’ tendons; and I put some hardcore time into finishing my sister’s cotton market bag – cotton is hard to work with because there is no ‘give’ in the fibers, so can be wearying on the hands.  At any rate, all of the above resulted in a week of me taking NSAIDs and aggressively resting, icing, and wrapping my wrists, which meant no weights and no knitting.  Thankfully, they were doing much better this weekend, so I was able to make some serious progress on the prayer shawl, but I’m still not even halfway done and the deadline is this Friday.  Here’s a pic of my progress as of early Sunday (since this was taken I finished the violet/blue wedge and got about 1/3 through the next – blue/green – wedge):


I still have more than half to knit – there are eight wedges total, plus a four-row edging that will go across the top.  Ideally, I need to finish by Thursday so I can soak it and pin it out to dry in its final shape, but it is not looking like that’s going to happen…
