Cast Away

I’m having to pause over the next few days thanks to a muscle spasm in my back. I’ve been knitting for about 4 hours a day in an attempt to finish a knitting job in time for Christmas. It’s my own fault that I’ve overdone it. A few days rest and careful massage should get my posture fixed and my knitting mission back on track.

It’s frustrating because I’m not accustomed to doing nothing with my hands. I’m in a restless state which cannot be satisfied by any other means. Knitting is my stress release. It stops me biting nails, spending money, hurting people. It helps me stay calm and usually results in a bespoke item of clothing at the end of it.

Just two more evenings without my pins…
