knitting devil

RSI - and how to avoid/minimise it

I had to take a few enforced days off from my knitting due to RSI. Of course, it couldn't have happened at a worse time when there are three Christmas projects on the needles. My hands and wrists are so swollen I've had to remove my rings and watch. The pain is worse in the elbows - and I don't even play tennis!

I wish I had found this article sooner.

I'm easing back into knitting with a project on large needles. I started it a couple of days ago and it's not finished yet - the part on the needles is in the 'project bag' with a wonderful cartoon MWNN found for me.

A lovely scarf designed for using just one skein in a stitch called faggot. I wonder if the designer realises the derogatory meaning of that word when naming the scarf?
