Sore Wrist and Cylons
I have been on a handwork diet. My several hours a day habit caused some bad things to happen to my wrist and arm. I have been going to a wonderful Chiropractor/Acupuncturist and she has helped me so much and, most importantly, has taught me how to take care of my hands.
Hands are so important to us crafters' and when something is wrong with your hands it travels to wrists, elbows, necks, shoulders, and on… Ouchy! Please don’t forget to take a break every 20 minutes or so and do some great stretches – your body will thank you!
The good thing is that I have used this re-coop time to start dying some fibre. Here are some pics of myself mixing up some stock solutions:
I love to listen to podcasts or music or watch great TV shows while doing my handwork…. Sometimes the two cross over. In this case Lick the Light Switch kindly posted this Cylon Centurion hat pattern! I love Battlestar Galactica! It was so fun to make.
