Great advice, GG. I'll have to try washing dishes in really hot water: It doesn't waste as much water, and it's more productive than just standing in the shower!
This is where the resting on a pillow while knitting helps me, I make sure my shoulders are kept down whilst I'm knitting. Otherwise soreness on my arms happen yikes.
