or rather, the not doing.

All evening my hands have ached, and I couldn’t figure out why.  My fingers have been killing me. And then, it struck me, I have not knit a single stitch since yesterday afternoon. I spent most of last night seaming up a bag, and that just isn’t the same thing as knitting, and I had been so busy today I didn’ t pick up any knitting on the few moments I did sit down. and let me tell you, my hands are letting me know.

I have told people for years, that I do lots of knitting to keep my hands from totally killing me, as early onset arthritis runs in my family, and my hands have bothered me for years/ Well, here is the proof.  Now.. I am off to relax in front of the TV for a while, and knit some. Got to find something to help these hands.
