Now that the staples are out of my arm and I’m not restricted to a sling, I’ve tried knitting again. I’ve been fearful that my gauge might change drastically so I did an experiment with a toe-up sock that I was in the process of knitting before my arm broke.
The black marker shows where I started knitting again. If you look close, you can see a slight change in texture at that point, but the gauge seems pretty consistent up to the holder.
The other side of the sock is worked in a k3, p1 rib and I really can’t tell a difference between the knitting below and above the marker.
So, I think I’m on my way to working on projects that were in progress back in December. But it’s going to take a while–my arm tires out after about an hour.
