Knitting may be great for mental/emotional therapy. However, overdoing it may be the cause of physical distress; whether one is overdoing it in stretches of time, over-exertion of fine muscles & tendons, bady body positioning, or even certain stitch combinations (K3tog, P4tog, come to mind).

Take it easier on yourselves (or at least the appendages that allow you to knit at all).

maybe she wants us to smile! anyway, I've noticed that I do need to take 'stretch breaks' from knitting and crocheting every 30-45 minutes and if I'm spending a lot of time knitting or crocheting in a single day, I do the breaks more frequently.

Keep knitting, this too shall pass.

No, beedee, we took it in the right spirit I think. The spirit of self knowledge and a bit of fun.
