reasons

I like to believe that everything happens for a good reason...that is, good things and not so good things...they all seem to have a way of working out...wouldn't you agree? Like this gorgeous yarn that was delivered by my friendly postman yesterday...they happened to have it when I wanted it and in the exact colorway...see,it was meant to be...now, that being said,last Friday...the 13th (you're not superstitious are you?) I picked up my needles to work on this...when the yarn ripped,just ripped...in half, at the end of a row,with only a mm to spare...I knew I would have to unknit a row ,blah,blah,blah...but the I thought...I really had wished I started it on larger needles,like the pattern called for ,wished it was lighter,airier...so I frogged it...and knit like a mad woman most of the weekend to compensate for what I had lost...I got this: just what I was looking for...it was really a rush to see it work just the way I wanted it to...you've had that feeling,too right? And I continued on until this...a flare up of tendonitis...tennis elbow...so for now,I'll wear my brace,take my Motrin and rest it...a little..but can anyone give me a good reason for this happening?

gosh - hope the tendonitis heals super fast... not great for knitting projects (esp. that gorgeous yarn of yours).

Oh, no! Well, you do have one gorgeous project to show for your pain. That's a plus... When I get that, I scream for cortisone shots.

Oh my! Well, maybe you are supposed to slow down and appreciate your finished project and admire your new yarn... for a little while... longer than you might wish... Hope you are feeling better quick!

Do you think your elbow is bothering you because of too much knitting? Hope it gets better very soon. In the meantime, even though it's hard to not knit daily, you should give your elbow lots of rest.
