Thanks for all your sympathy and thoughts on my aching hand. I've mostly laid off knitting for the last two days, other than a few rounds on this sock, which is my own Trellis design.
Kathy suggested trying socks with wooden needles, which seems to be fine. I don't know why, but the magic loop technique, which I like, seems to be causing the pain. I'll have to finish the sweater a little at a time. I'm afraid if I switch to dpns, the gauge will be different.
I've also been looking at sewing books influenced by Japanese styling. Don't ask me why. I am a terrible seamstress! But I'd like to get better, and some of these items are pretty easy. The downside of easy is that some of them are hideously ugly. Who knows? Maybe I'll find something even I could make.
