It's been about three weeks since I felt the aching pain running down my shoulder into my fingers. I was miserable because knitting has been a great comfort of mine the past few years. It something that a knitter has a difficult time explaining to a non-knitter the feeling you get. The almost calming, relaxing pleasure when you needles are click-clacking together. Almost every evening I would pick up my sticks and knit for about a half an hour and I had to literally stop. I was having trouble sleeping with the pain shooting in my shoulder. I tried to learn the other method but I felt uncomfortable almost like riding a bicycle backwards. So I made the decision to take a break. Well, I knew I needed to find something else to keep my hands busy so I began scrapping again. I bought a new Cricut Expression and it has opened my eyes up to endless projects. I had already stashed away my other scrapbooking stuff so I dug it out and couldn't believe that I had acquired so much! I have found my nitch again and although I still feel guilty of abandoning my knitting I know it is for the best. So now that I have two wonderful hobbies I felt it was only right to rename my blog. The name came from my love of knitting and my new found love of scrapping....I give you the Scrappin' Knitster!!!
