Sorry again for being so absent. Life is crazy here in Germany at the moment. Some good things, some bad things. Most days I feel like life is ten steps ahead of me and I am trying to catch up. This as a short warning not to take me to seriously in this post...
So, let's talk about crochet "injuries". The other day, Michelle and I were chatting and we were quite convinced that injuries obtained by obsessive crocheting must be considered sport injuries. After all, it involves a fast, repeated movement of the hands and arms, so it must be a sport and therefore crochet injuries are sport injuries. Don't you agree?
I got two crochet ehh sport injuries at the moment:
(1) Opening a parcel with yarn and piecing my finger with a knife while trying to do so.
(2) Extensive teddy making with a small hook and lots of tension to keep the holes small lead to bruising and calculus on my middle finger. That is the finger which stops the crochet hook after I put it through the stitch.
Among my previous injuries was a golfer's arm, a chopped finger nail and a sore neck. Boys and girls, doesn't this show that crochet is officially hardcore? :D
What do you have to add to the list?
Take care and happy crocheting
