Desperate Knitter Seeks Relief

Suddenly my shoulders decided to go on strike. They found out that they have been overworked, underpaid and lacked proper benefits. They simply laid down their arms with a lot of calsium in them...

The owner of the striking shoulders got knitting stop and regardless of all kind of negotioations the situation is still unsolved. The only thing really working is listening to that knitting stop.

But a desperate owner of shoulders on strike tend to hit the end of a thread at some point. Although the stash is just sitting there, a very small purchase was made. The smell of wool, the feel of wool and the thought of it becoming a scarf gives some kind of relief.

Maybe I could be a strikebreaker? Sort of bypass those guarded shoulders and fool them to think that knitting is really not that bad? It could be some lucky step. Or it could be even worse.

I decided to go on a 3mm needle in wood. Knit only a few rows. And maybe, just maybe the joy in creating and living a knitters life can heal those shoulders?? Or not... I know!!! Be patient, get treatment and think that it will pass. After all, this is not the end of the world. Or someting like that...

Anyway, as I hope for better days I dream of that red thread becoming a new scarf. In the meantime I read books. A lot of them...

  1. Nej, hvor forfærdeligt! Jeg krydser virkelig fingre for, at du snart er i bedring og strikkeklar igen :-) Håber, du får behandling! Fuldstændig fantastisk billede og vidunderlig rød farve - det bliver en drøm af et tørklæde :-)

  2. ÅÅÅÅÅHHHHHH.... du har min største sympati og medfølelse. Sender alle gode ønsker om snarlig bedring og strikkeglæde til dig.
    Er der ikke noget alternativ kreativ beskæftigelse, der kan lindre strikkekløen? Hækle, brodere, knytte, orkere, flette smukke bånd.... man kan jo ikke læse 24/7!
    Måske nogle lange gåture kan give frisk luft til tankeværket....
    God bedring.

    1. Tusind tak Anne!!! Ikke så meget egner sig, men der er blevet en ret stor andel maskemarkører... Men så laver man lige en forkert bevægelse... Nå, men det går jo over på et eller andet tidspunkt - og gåturer er skønt!!!

  4. Æsj ass !!!! Sånne skuldre er no dritt. Jeg fikk Vimovo i perioder, det hjalp. Bare et lite tips ;) Kanskje du kan strikke enkle luer, bare for å holde feelingen igang :) God bedring til deg fra meg :)

  5. Hope you get well soon. While not knitting, isn*t this an incredible possibility not only to read, but also to create patterns (in mind, on paper) to look forward to doing after this break ... Sometimes our body tells us interesting things whne we are ready to listen. All the best, Florentina

    2. Yes, I understand your feelings. Not being able to do what one wants to do with all of ones heart - means learning to be patient (believe me, I am not as good at being patient as my words perhaps tell... I am still learning, and sometimes I fail, going "grrrrr" ). Might it help you to recognize how your shoulders get better? Very little, very, very little. But this tiny bit might be the first step to a healthy shoulder, which means to a knitting one. Again; all the best and may your health improve hour by hour. Greetings from Germany - Florentina

  7. I hope the shoulders go off strike as fast as possible. The tempting smell of wool or the prospect of new scarfs enticing them to cooperate :-)

  8. Trøsten - sommer og fint været. Så deilig utenfor. Fantastiske spasereturer.
    Jeg leser Yoyo Moyes sommer lesing og spennende. Jeg krysser fingrene for at du er rask i form. Ha riktig god midsommerhelg. Stor klem fra Viola
