Horizontal Knitting

Today I see if I can knit flat on my back. Hell, if Michaelangelo could paint a ceiling like this, then I can knit a darned cardigan, right?

I'd made tentative plans to get together with some of my teaching/designer friends who are in town for the Yarn Over, but now that will not happen, and I am bereft. [sigh]

Even worse, I was going to volunteer at the Textile Center Garage Sale tomorrow, but there is non way I'm moving.

I have a heating pad planted firmly under me, and just discovered that I can parent from this angle (get IN that shower NOW, Max!)

Why did I have to ride my bike yesterday. As soon as I got a block away I knew what a stupid idea it was. But not riding would have meant picking up Max's bike and shoving it into the back of the car, which seemed a much bigger deal at the time than just riding. Well, now I know. And apparently it's time to get the bike rack back on the car.

On to some back knitting. Luckily I already have the project on circs...

Get thee to a chiropractor. They will make it better.

"I just discovered that I can parent from this angle" is my new favorite line. Go you!

I'm prone to back spasms, which is one particular form of torture. The only thing that gets me through them is Robaxisal C, that is, Robaxisal with Codeine. It's a prescription drug here in Canada; don't know about the States. That plus an ice pack are what get me through one of those painful times.
Hope you find something that works for you!
