Injured and can't knit
Over two weeks ago I started having terrible pain in my right shoulder with numbness down my arm and into my thumb and first finger which turned out to be a pinched nerve at C5. Now the nerve is no longer pinched but my neck still gives me terrible trouble when I try and knit. It's the throwing action of english knitting which is causing me the greatest amount of pain, but when I attempt continential I get all tensed up bc I'm learning something new.

I miss knitting! This shall pass right? Please share any stories of being without knitting. Or show me something you're working on and are proud of, so I can live vicariously through you.
