My 6 Word Memoir:
Young love promises happiness and delivers.
I have seen this floating around on blogs this week and decided to join in. It seems to have been inspired by this NPR story, which was inspired by this book. And here is the blog that inspired me to write my own: Gubbinal
Here are the guidelines, should you choose to participate in this yourself:
- Write your own six word memoir.
- Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
- Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
- Tag five more blogs with links.
I hereby tag these bloggers: Nutmeg Knitter, Natasha B, Ariadne’s Thread, SweetP Knits, and A Friend to Knit With. Do what you will, fair bloggers!
Some of you may recognize this post as an outright avoidance of writing about my knitting, and it is. I have made minimal progress this week on my two most active projects, the Morning Surf Scarf and Twisted Cable socks, but nothing worth writing about.
I am actually experiencing some soreness in my thumb joints that has been preventing me from knitting for very long at a time. Could it be? Do I have a knitting-related injury? I’ve never been so lucky as to have a sports-related injury. I was a dancer and a (gasp) cheerleader in high school, but never really hurt myself. Probably because I try not to do anything risky where I could potentially get hurt! This knitter’s thumb makes me feel like I’m really dedicated and hard-core or something. Is there a knitting Olympics I could be training for?! In all seriousness, I hope this is nothing to be concerned about. I am going to take it easy with the knitting this weekend and focus on hanging out with my sweetie and friends.
Do your hands or arms get sore or tired when you knit?
What can you do to get “in shape” for knitting?
