Tuesday Trivia

Yay, Patti! Even though we like to think that we can push on through when feeling the pain from too much knitting, we actually need to take a break from ALL handwork, once in a while. But, it's sooooo hard! I'm still not sure there's a cure for Second Sock Syndrome, because I accidentally casted on ANOTHER sock today. Whoops!

Thanks to everyone who took part in the contest - I've also awarded last week's winner. Playing catch-up, as you do :)

Second Sock Syndrome. It's a thing. I'm suffering right now. These are my three STR-socks-in-waiting.  Sorry the photo got turned sideways, I'm not sure how to fix that. 

So what does that have to do with trivia?  Well, even though Second Sock Syndrome isn't actually a physical ailment, there is the possibility of suffering from things like repetitive stress injury from knitting too much. Heck, I sleep with braces on my wrists because of knitting. Not that that will ever make me stop ;)

So, in light of that, and in the hopes that we as a group can avoid further injuries, which of the tips below are bogus in regards to lessening your chances of knitting-related pain?

A. Rest your hands often.

B. Get up and mooooove! Set a timer if you need to.

C.  Intermix your knitting with something else, like needlepoint, or embroidery.

D. Gently stretch your hands, wrists, and fingers.

Remember, the first one to answer wins the Trivia Badge! And, I'll a word the Trivia Badge Winner from last week later on today.

I'd say (c), all the other needle will strain your hands as well... As hard as it is, we just need to STOP KNITTING occasionally :)... Good luck with that!

Trivia

I say B. Moving around may not do your hands any good if you don't rest them.
