I've been able to start knitting again. A few weeks ago I started having pain in my wrist so I took a break. Now I just let myself knit for short periods.
Today I finshed my October socks. Opal yarn using a vanilla pattern.
Last week I was able to finish a scarf that will be sent to my exchange partner from Knit and Chat.
Later today I will start back on my September socks. Not sure when I finish them but I do think they are the reason I hurt my wrist. I am using Knit Picks Essential on size 1 dpns and I think the weight of the yarn on such small needles were a bit tough for my wrist.
I do have yarn to make a hat and scarf with larger needles so I may switch back and forth between them and the socks to help my wrist out. At the first twinge of discomfort I do stop knitting and take a few days rest. Now willing to risk the use of my hands just to knit.

I love the picture of the Bridge! I'm glad your wrist is recovering. It's so frustrating when you want to knit, but can't. Take care! Ann (amysmum2)
