After a needed adjustment, a warm salt bath, and a nap, I know that of the Things I get to do today walking is one of the most important as it provides a balanced massage of the mid and low back. Standing is also fine. Sitting, no.
|A cast-off ball of cotton cord|
I began by standing and playing with my knitting frame and a recent gold mine: bags of yarn from an exploration through a friend's yarn bin. An ordinary-nearly-ugly ball of cotton cord became a scarf. Reverse stockinette looked better than the "right" side, so some handwork was required. I walked all around the house while I closed the long scarf.
|Half the scarf length|
A fringe would sharpened the look. A fringe is made from dozens of pieces of yarn, equal in length, fastened with a loop by a crochet hook. Picking up each strand, folding it in half, forming the loop with the hook, and securing it to the scarf can take some time. And my idea was to be walking while putting on the fringe.
