A Little Finished Object Dance, a Little Neh!

I'm doing pretty well on my holiday knitting so it's time for a little finished object dancing.
So far I've finished these socks, this hat, these socks, these socks,and these mittens.
I'm about half way through a Pinwheel Sweater for Little Niece. That leaves another Pinwheel for Big Niece, Christmas stockings for my sister, brother-in-law and Little Niece (Big Niece already has one), socks, hat, mittens and scarf for Little Nephew and a pair of socks each for the two Zen Masters at the Cambridge Zen Center.
I'm also having a great time on Ravelry. I love the project organizer and am absolutely addicted to updating the percentage finished I am on my projects. Thanks to omly, I've been seeing who has my yarn and/or has been knitting with my patterns. I've also been trolling around seeing who else I know and friending them. It's turning into my latest guilty pleasure!
So, what's making me go "Neh!"? Well, after all this knitting including all day and all night yesterday, I woke up this morning with my left hand fingers very sore and actually swollen and some of my right hand fingers going numb. Not. Good. After a trip to the chiropractor, I'm much better but still am taking it easy. I always thought repetitive stress was something that happened to other people but apparently not.

Get yourself a plastic tub big enough to put your hand and arm up to the elbow in, and soak in warm epsom salts for 10 minutes at the start of each day. Great for strains.

Wow -- you're churning out the knits. Make sure to knit something for yourself after the holidays, ok?

Patience, that's a great idea. I'll try it. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here watching TV and not knitting. It's driving me CRAZY!
Danielle, I have a whole stack of yummy, yummy sock yarn waiting for me when I get all this stuff done.
