Looking ahead

As I near the end of the first sleeve of my if-it-doesn't-fit-I'll-never-knit-another cardigan, it's the little things that keep me going.

Fearless Fibers

I've been wanting to knit this Fruit of the Vine scarf since Anne first started it and grabbed the pattern as soon as she was done. The merino lace is the "Rubicon" colorway from Fearless Fibers... and it's perfect.

BTW - I would understand if all the 4-ply cotton were making my hands ache, but I have no idea what's up with my achy legs. I couldn't even get to sleep last night because my legs hurt... and believe me... it is most certainly not due to exercise. Then once I did get to sleep, I overslept my son's 10:50 swim lesson. Ugh. I'm still trying to catch up with the day.

Oooooh, pretty yarn and pretty pattern! I like it! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Not sure if it will help at all, but when I was pregnant with 7 I had horrible leg cramps...the answer...Bananas. My favorite treat was one banana sliced then frozen, added to 1c. milk (and possibly a dash of vanilla &/or cinnamon) then blended. Almost like icecream. And somehow...fixed the cramps. Hope you find your answer soon.

I think that the barometric pressure is going up or down...that is when I get aches and pains, too...and I haven't felt well for about three days.

Me thinks you are way too young for those aches and pains that come with the approach of menopause, so maybe you are dehydrated? Drink more water during the day or try calcium/magnesium supplements before bed which sometimes helps.

Hope that helps!

Hi Tammy!
Love the yarn. So sorry about your sore legs! DH gets these awful leg cramps. The doctor suggested TONIC WATER. It has quinine, which helps. He's been drinking it like a fish every night and so far so good.
Perhaps it could help you, too.
Feel better!
Hugs,
Donna
