How many of you have......
knitted so long in one day that by the time you went to bed you couldn't fall asleep because your hand was actually throbbing!! :( I had to take 600 mg of ibuprofen and put an ice pack on my hand in order to fall asleep.

Can you believe that? And this morning its still a bit sore. Sigh, no knitting for me today. :crying:

On a plus note I got quite a bit done on my baby blanket :rofling:

Work through the pain Cath, work through the pain.

I've done this more times than I'll admit. My hands are better now, but my shoulder has started in with problems. It too knit through the pain! I've been known to put Biofreeze on my hands and wear gloves to bed when my hands hurt!

Knitting is worth it!!!

I do most of my knitting at night before I go to bed. Sometimes my hands start to get sore and that's when I know it's time to quit for the night. :D I was reading on another board about someone who had to totally stop knitting for a month because of her sore hands. I don't want that to happen...what would I do if I couldn't knit for an entire month?

It's not my hands that get to hurting, it's my back and neck. I sit at the most odd angles when I knit.

Been there, done that.
I usually knit through the pain, but on one occassion I did loose feeling of both my hands, so I did stop for a while.

Good thing to help the pain? Wear armwarmers while you knit (or type, etc).

If I knit too long, my right wrist and elbow will start to hurt. I can get by for a while by putting a pillow under my arm, but then I have to stop. I've been so busy lately though, that if I even get an hour a day to knit, I'm lucky!
