In my case, my left knee and hip hurt. A lot.
And even though I spend a good deal of time on the treadmill, stationary bike, and on the streets pushing a heavy three-year old and pulling a large dog up hills, I am positive that my sore knee and hip aren't from these activities.
Thing is, I sit on my duff for hours on end, usually with my left leg underneath my body, or tucked under the other leg or over the other leg. Resulting in such soreness, last night I actually popped an Advil. I try to be conscious of my position, but that dang leg always manages to get tucked somewhere it shouldn't.
Do knitters knit standing up? Leaning against the wall? How about propped up by a large chunk of wood or something? I tell you what, either I have to get one of those zappers to zap myself whenever I get into "that position," or I'm going to have to start knitting standing up.
The yellow/green yarn up top? This is the cotton yarn I dyed the other day. It turned out great. I used a golden yellow and a chartreuse. Then, I splashed some tangerine here and there. I think Girlfriend needs a spring sweater or something.
By the way, stay tuned. Vickie Howell, the host of Knitty Gritty and editor/author of the new book, "New Knits on the Block," will be interviewed, here, on this blog. I'll post the interview on Thursday...
