Ten Plus One Unkinking Exercises for Knitters

In This Chapter

  • Loosening up tight neck muscles ^ Soothing sore shoulders and arms ^ Letting go of tension in your hands and wrists c
  • itting in one position and concentrating on your knitting for long (or even short) periods of time can make you stiff in your shoulders and neck. Not to mention that holding needles and making small movements with your hands can cramp fingers and wrists. The exercises in this chapter (they're so helpful that we couldn't stop at just ten) will keep your body's knitting parts loose, limber, and fatigue-free if you take a break and do them every 20 minutes or so while you're working.

If you find your wrists are sore after knitting with straight needles for long stretches of time, you may want to try knitting with circular needles instead. The slight difference in wrist position when using circulars can make a big difference, particularly if you have carpal tunnel syndrome or a similar condition.
