I developed pretty bad tendinitis in my right arm last summer. Unfortunately it was from knitting. I had hoped resting it would help. But after many months of healing just knitting for a few minutes set me back again. :(

That's horrible! Thank God I didn't have to give up knitting when I got frozen shoulder.
I will say, that when I injured the tendon in my right thumb, I couldn't knit for a couple of months and when I took it back up I began resting my left needle on my left thigh (what else are mouse pads for?) and it made it so much easier without the weight of my project causing me to tense up that part of my hand/arm. Which just shows we will find a way to do what we love.
Knitting to keep my sanity. It's working... kinda...

I sprained my pinkie/road rash'd my right hand when I tripped running to catch a bus, so I couldn't knit for a few days (or wash my hair properly, or easily wash dishes or do kind of anything) horrible!
