I’m slowly improving. My foot is feeling much better although I still can’t walk on it without the boot on. The pain in my wrist and hand comes and goes. I’ve been able to knit some but not nearly what I’d like too. I’m pretty sure that the source of my pain is a pinched nerve in my back. I’ve been icing it and using heating pads. I’ve also been following along with a YouTube video with stretches for tight muscles in your back. It’s helping!
I’ve also spent a lot of time reading. I’ve finished at least five books since hurting my foot on July 8th.
Knitting for Health and Wellness
How to knit a flexible mind & more…
I have to admit that I was a bandwagon jumper with this book. A lot of knitters were posting about it on instagram and I was curious. I was curious to see if the book had anything about knitting through grief to improve your mental health. There was one small paragraph on page 161. That’s it one paragraph!!! However, the book touched on stress and anxiety several times. It also talked about ways that introverted people an use knitting as a self soothing mechanism in social settings.
You can see the list of books that I’ve read on Missy’s Crafty Books. The site is still a work in progress . I’m trying to add books off of my Goodreads account for the past several years.
