I think that pulling a muscle in my back was my body’s way of making me slow down. And boy, has it ever!
I had so much holiday stuff to do and had do some major crossing-off-the-list to allow myself some sanity. I’m feeling better about it today(especially after a great massage), but was feeling quite tormented by it on Monday.
I had been unable to sit for long periods of time, bend over or twist. So I’ve been lying on the sofa, slightly inclined with a heating pad on my back and yarn and needle in hand. I couldn’t just lie there! I had to do something or I would totally go insane.
For the last three days, I’ve been hopping from one project to another and I am very much enjoying the soothing rhythm of knitting. I did a little Santa stitching too, which I will share tomorrow.

All of these projects have been projects I have been working on over the last few month. It was kind of fun getting reacquainted with them and actually get a couple done.
