Oh my, I recommend no knitting for a while.

You've heard of tennis elbow? Well, I once had knitter's elbow so bad I couldn't turn a door knob or hold a glass. I allowed it get so bad, that short rests didn't help. I finally gave up knitting for almost 5 years. I missed it too much. I modified my method just a little and I have to remember not to knit too fast. I make each stitch with a count of three and move my hands slowly.
It's slow, but worth it.
Lana <<<<<< I can't knit like that anymore.
*Knit, rip*, repeat between the *s as many times as necessary.
