I can't feel two of my fingers anymore

Yesterday we drove from our house in Ohio to my in-law's house on the eastern shore of Maryland. We left at 6:30am, and got in around 5:30pm. I think that out of that entire 11 hours, I wasn't knitting socks for about an hour.

By last night I could no longer feel my right-hand ring or pinkie fingers. I might have been pushing myself a leeetle too hard.

But I only have 1 1/2 more socks to go before Thursday! Um, yay?

In happier news, my MIL has a new cat who is still young enough to appreciate the joys of a preschooler with a long piece of string and an abiding interest in playing with cats. Poor cat is going to have lost a pound or two of weight, just from dealing with Little Miss HEER KITTEH COME PLAY WITH ME KITTEH COME OUT FROM UNDER THE TABLE KITTEH OH ISN'T THE KITTEH CUTE COME CHASE THE STRING KITTEH KITTEH KITTEH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to go brave Wal-Mart and Target and Toys R Us and Michaels to finish up my Christmas shopping and help with my MILs.

As one who has had long running battles with tendonitis from computing, please do not ignore your knitting-induced numbness. It took me YEARS to recover from two WEEKS of manic typing.

K's Mom - No, no kittehs in our future. The two we have are living on borrowed time already, as Jason's allergies are getting worse with age. I think Zach and Bella are the last two cats I get to have.

And MLF - your hat is sitting at home, waiting for me to have the attention span required to juggle three different patterns, none of which are the right size for your head. Vacation knitting, it is not.
