Last Saturday involved a road trip of 226 miles. Of course I took some knitting with me. Have you ever worked out how many stitches you knit in any one session? I calculated approximately 6500 and I only had a back, one front and part of another front of a baby cardigan. It’s a good job I love knitting because if I always calculated the number of stitches and hours of work it might drive me a little crazy!
Then yesterday, Monday, which was a work day – was all going well until I fell down a stair (just one stair!) and wrenched my foot. I ended up at the Accident and Emergency Unit at our local hospital – knitting on and off for three and a half hours whilst being dealt with by nurse, doctor and the x-ray department – diagnosed eventually with soft tissue damage and prescribed rest and ice packs. I reckon I knitted 1499 stitches whilst I sat waiting around! Now with this now enforced r&r this cardigan will be finished super quick and if I am lucky I may even have a small pile of other projects done too. There is a bonus to injury this time, always look on the bright side of life! No camera handy to photograph those extra 1499 stitches yet.
Have a good crafty day. I know I will!
