It's all coming back to me. I have slowed down on my constant sock knitting this past year. I thought I had just lost that lovin' feeling. But now it's all coming back to me. I knit on US Size 1 needles. I knit a lot. I knit quickly. I knit until I'm done. Put that all together and whenever I knit socks, I end up with a huge knot in the back of my shoulders. I have such a knot this week. It's mostly likely due to the fact that I knit not one, but two pairs of socks. So I did what any sane knitter would do. I went for a manicure/pedicure.
How does that make sense? Well, I get a free massage with my mani/pedi. And I needed some TLC on my toes... so it made sense to do both for the price of one. Don't you love how my mind works?
P.S. Instead of giving it a rest, my logic continues that the faster I can finish these socks, the faster I can give my aching muscles a break.
