Comments: KNITTING ACHES

That neck crick is a bugger. When you go back to knitting again - be sure to set a timer and take a break every hour at least (every half hour if you can make yourself do it). Do some exercises for the top of your body... look up at the ceiling, move your head slowly from side to side. Stand up and do shoulder rolls forward and backward... first with one shoulder at a time, then with both. That kind of thing.

Here's a link to some "desk stretches" that might give you a good idea.

If you do this every hour, and take just a "stand up and move" break every 30 minutes, I think you'll be surprised how much faster and better the project goes. :-)

I just took a look at that miniature knitting. It is beautiful. And the overworked word that really means something here, AWESOME. She is an artist.
