I think I'm going to have to take a break from knitting and crochet for a while. I sat down this evening and taught myself how to do afghan crochet, and now both of my hands and wrists ache. I took a couple aspirins, which took the edge off, but they're still kind of ache-y. Maybe it was the big hook I was using, an H, which is the same as a US 8 knitting needle. I know that doesn't sound huge, but I've been doing mostly thread crochet or knitting with size 2 or smaller needles lately, and I think the jump in size might have been bad. Or maybe it's that I've been working with cotton a lot lately, which is hard on your hands because it isn't elastic like wool. Either way, an hour of crochet shouldn't do that to your hands.

So I'm typing right now. It makes sense if you think about it. I'm also sining along to the Mulan soundtrack, which makes sense if you don't think about, which I'm trying not to do. Whoever thought that Donny Osmond could be a Chinese general in his mid-twenties?
