Knitter's Shoulder or Why I'm Taking a Break

Who knew knitting could be hazardous to your health? It's supposed to be a peaceful, creative, and meditative activity, able to be performed along or in a group, an activity in which process is at least as important as the culminating product. It's not supposed to leave you reaching for analgesics round the clock. Yet here I am, for the second week, trying to find something to occupy my hands while I watch TV.

Of course, I'd heard rumours of a woman who tore her rotater cuff while knitting the brioche stitch using continental technique, but shrugged off the rumours as mere braggadocio. Now I wonder if an MRI lies in my future...

I'll have to content myself in recounting my recent adventures in needlecraft as I prepare to, once again, take up needles and hooks.


  1. It was me and I wasn't bragging--I couldn't knit for about 6 months--I felt desperate for something to do with my hands.

  2. Sorry for the misspelling - I hate it when people get mine wrong. And I knew you were never a deb!

    I should have added that I became a believer and empathizer. It's miserable to have idle hands - they tend to reach for the potato chip bag. I should also add that I'm now terrified to try the brioche stitch, though I've promised Doug the Oriental Neck Tie for Christmas.

  3. Gгеetings frоm Ϲοloгaԁo!
    I'm bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you provide here and can't wаit to tаke а look when
    I get home. I'm surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not
    еνen using WӏFI, just 3G .. Αnyways,
