No knitting

My back is in such severe pain at the moment that I cannot even think about finishing this piece of knitting.  NO!!!  And to think that knitting is meant to be a relaxing hobby.  Craft can be dangerous.

Too much sitting is the cause of my back issues, so I have decided to paint an enormous picture instead, which will mean standing all day.  I will post photos of the painting's progress soon.

Enjoy the sun.

Sorry to hear that Sandra. I have had to go to the physio for my neck and admit my injury is from crocheting! Look forward to seeing the painting!

Hi Julianne -- I'm simultaneously glad, sorry and unsurprised to hear that I am not the only one.

I saw an ad for a TV report which showed increasing numbers of children going to see specialists regarding neck and back pain, due to hunching over i-pads and other devices. Get away from those awful things, kids, or your middle age will be full of pain!
