Row counter

I have a confession to make: I actually own a row counter. My nana had one in her knitting kit and I have inherited it. However, because of my sentimental side, I have hung it from my rear view mirror in my car, and love having it there as my motivation, and like a guardian angel looking out for me. I can’t use it for my own knitting. So I will eventually purchase my own.
Right now, I have a different method of counting rows. I have either a little paper beside me where I cross my rows off, or if I’m somewhere where I don’t have my paper, I keep track by naming the rows after hockey or football players jersey numbers! For example, I’m currently on Daniel Sedin (22). Earlier today I was on Ryan Kesler (17). Last night, I ended on Tom Brady (12). I’m ridiculous, I know. But it sure works for me!!
Happy knitting!!!

Sore shoulders

Every once in a while I will catch myself sitting in an incredibly awkward position while I knit. I get my right shoulder into a frozen position and start knitting like that for HOURS. I don’t really know why I don’t notice it all the time, it isn’t particularly comfortable.

This morning, I woke up with a very sore shoulder. I started thinking, this IS NOT the right way to knit. I started looking for a book that I had seen somewhere…and I found it! (God Bless! I don’t know if this book is going to fix my life, but I think it’s probably a very good start.

Laidback knitters also have a website here.

Next Amazon order I place, this will be on my list!
