Ouch, bummer! How about reading books you've been wanting to read and maybe some knitting books, too.

Ooooh, sorry to hear that. If it were me, I'd be watching movies, catching up on my massive to-be-read book stack, or spending all of my time on the internet stockpiling patterns I want to do when my wrist is better.

You make it sound like we're heroin/knitting addicts. Back on the needles in no time.

Me too! Sprained my left wrist overdoing it in the garden and with a lawnmower over rough terrain. So you have a companion-in-pain (and knitting withdrawals)

but today I bought a good wrist brace, wore it all day. It's my left wrist and I'm right-handed, so I've been trying gently to knit anyways, and as long as I can move my fingers without pain, I'll keep on knitting.

Good luck with yours!

You could use some of the time to watch knitting videos (Youtube, etc.) and read blogs to learn lots of new things. Save the good stuff for later use.

Time for a visit to the library, to borrow everything ever written by the Yarn Harlot, and don't forget her blog!
