Knitting injury

I picked up the Salami sock this evening after my last post and started knitting. I felt pain on my ring finger.

Look at this! I think it's a knitting injury, looks like a blister, but there's no fluid in there.

I knit continental (holding the yarn in my left hand) and the needle I'm knitting from rests across my ring finger – I obviously lean on the finger harder than I thought I did!

  1. Ouch! Here's one for you...a couple weeks ago I dug out my chef's knives and started happily chopping whatever I could find in the fridge. Being slightly out of practice using perfectly balanced knives that happened to be *gasp* sharp, I proceeded to slice off the tip of my left pointer finger and fingernail. Couldn't knit for over a week! I won the dumba*& award for that little trick!

    Hope the finger feels better soon!
