Seize the Tunnel

So how much knitting am I going to do under these conditions? Not a lot is my guess.

Yes folks, I hate to say it, but the 2 words that strike fear into a knitter's heart have been uttered. Carpal Tunnel. Can you say 'Ow'?

After much denial I've had to admit to and address this painful condition. Let's hope that the splints can reduce/eliminate the problem. Turns out that it's not caused by knitting either, but more likely computer use.

Also turns out to be Carpal Tunnel, not Carpe Tunnel (as in Carpe Deim, Seize the Day) as I've always thought. Who knew? Well, everybody but me probably.

No matter. Whatever you call it, it's a bl**dy nusiance!

Oh dear, poor you. I hear that is very painful. Hope it clears up for you soon.
