Knitting for too long making me nausious??
I've gotten back into knitting over the past month after a long hiatus, but I am finding that if I knit for too long (more than an hour or so), I feel like I am getting nausious and have to take a break. Has anyone else found this to be an issue? I know I am just not used to concentrating on something like my needles and yarn, so I am hoping it goes away, but I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

Eyesight issues perhaps?

Maybe I'm just having issues in general! I think I am just concentrating WAY too hard on what I am doing. I am in that stage where it's not really relaxing to knit yet, it's more of me teaching myself how to get back into the swing of things...

Eyestrain will do that.

It's seems to be quite common among knitters in their early pregnancy or sometimes the entire time.. Any chance of that?

Do you know if there's anything I can do to reduce eyestrain? I try to knit in good lighting, but maybe it's my intense concentration or something...

I hope not!

I think I am just thinking too hard about what I am knitting when I am making it, and trying not to mess something up, which is ridiculous, because currently I am only working on two scarves!

I have the same issue that you do. I'm slightly far-sighted, but I can still see pretty clearly. My reading glasses died in a tragic accident (involving my teething puppy dog) a few months back, and I haven't yet gotten them replaced. Without glasses, I can't do any "close up" activities for too long before I get headaches and nausea. You might want to go for an eye exam, even if your vision does not seem blurred.

Good call gatorjade, my pug puppy ate my glasses a few months ago as a matter of fact as well! I've been wearing contacs for the past few months, but it just hasn't been the same as the clarity I get with glasses! I will have to look into an eye appointment ASAP!

I would think eyesight problems might do that. My lens in my glasses had twisted because the screw was loose, and it took three trips to the eyepeople to find one who saw that. It felt like my eyes were going crazy! My problem is falling asleep!!! I'm knitting the One Row Scarf from Yarn Harlot's site, and it's very relaxing. I knit and knit and fall asleep. Hope you figure it out soon! Knitting shouldn't make you sick!
