I overdid it!
This week I went back to work. Silly me, thinking I could just jump back into full time, after all I don't do much, just sit at a desk and work on a computer. Turns out sitting at my desk is a totally different feel than sitting on my big cushy chair at home and knitting. I am in a totally different body shape and I have to remember to get up a lot and walk around.
I woke up this morning early, my knee was just throbbing. Usually it is great in the morning or a little rough, but this was big time owie. I took an oxy and emailed my boss I would be coming in, later. I guess I need to slow down a bit.
I have PT at 3 today, so that will wear me out big time for tonight. I am planning a very light work day tomorrow. I must say this has given me a much better understanding of Leif's knee. It is crazy but right after PT I feel very revved up, my knee is loose, I feel very adept. But half an hour later I am ready to pass out. It is physically exhausting. I am glad I go to PT at the end of the work day cause I am pretty useless afterwards. Tuesday night I was ready for bed at 9!
Also in slowdown mode is my Avery Cowl. I must be knitting looser (hmm that took me a minute to not write loser). I had noticed on several Ravelry posts that people were running out with 2 skeins. Well I managed to cast off Zoya's cowl without doing row 1 again, and had to spit weld some strands leftover from too long a cast on tail to finish the cast off. On mine, I am about 5 rows shy of casting off and I maybe have one row of yarn left. So I ordered another skein last night. Now i will just have to wait until next week to wear my cowl. The yarn seemed to take a week or so to get here. I noticed last night that Quince & Company had sent me a cute postcard and a button with my order. How nice! I do love that Osprey yarn.
