I have been having a bit of wrist pain over the past few months - it got quite severe during one week in the winter so I really pulled back on the knitting, have been wearing a brace for typing and sleeping, and I am happy to say that there is progress. Not too much pain anymore. But I needed something to occupy me during my non-knitting times and I found two fun distractions.
The first is that I became a charter member of the Center for Knit and Crochet - an organization that is taking off right here in my own community!
The other is the book No Idle Hands which was given to my at Christmas by my Sister-in-Law. What a great read! I am not a historian, and some of the older passages take a bit of deciphering to fully understand, but I am loving learning about the history of knitting in the United States. A great way to take a break from the actual knitting, but still feel connected to it.
I have started knitting again this spring in earnest and can feel the tension in my wrist from time-to-time. The night brace is brilliant and helps a lot. As does taking my knitting in moderation.
