Oh Mary Kay - I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I have had a couple of "neck episodes" and I know how excruciating the pain is - fortunately massage and acupunture helped. I believe it came from improper posture while using my laptop. Your sweater is lovely - as is the flower photo. We have an amaryllis with tons of blooms - a joy to view. I am sending tons of good karma your way....feel better!


I love your stripey sweater, did you use leftover yarn????? Just beautiful. I am so sorry about your back pain, hoping you get better and find answers soon...


No, like a stupid-head I bought something like 11 colors. Now I have enough for 2 more sweaters just like it! Sheesh. I think I might weave a blanket instead! Thanks for commenting!

Thanks Beth, its amazing how debilitating it is. And, I just feel like a big baby! I see both of your solutions in my future as well. I also see money flowing out of my pockets quicker than it goes in! Blech!

I am so sorry to hear about your neck pain and all the trouble that is causing for you. You are definately in my prayers. Hope for a miracle and do what the dr's say in the meantime. I love your sweater and I have so much yarn I really think that is the answer. Just stripe everything. Love and hugs to you babe!

I'm sorry for what you are going through. I do hope you can still knit . . .
Please let us know how you're doing. I check your blog all the time--
I miss the days when you would drop in for Kristi's classes or just to knit--always a plus to be with you.
I'll look forward to seeing you whenever you can make it back to SD -- Suzanne


mary kay your sweater is WONDERFUL! and it looks so good on you!
very very filled with stripey goodness i'd say!

it's funny you posted, your yarn has been calling my name now that i found my sock mojo..i've been dying to get gift knitting done so i can cast on and cast on and cast on in nothing but RRFW for some socks

i am sorry you are in pain and hurt all i can offer is hugs. :(


I love your sweater Mary-Kay! It looks wonderful on you :)

I'm so sorry you're in such pain :( I really hope the dr's can help you out soon!! It was great to see you on Friday!


Sorry to hear you are in pain :( I know people either love or hate chiropractors, and this might not be the right situation, but I had a back / neck pain that I was taking muscle relaxants for, ice, heat, etc. Nothing worked. My sister suggested the chiropractor and five minutes later, pain gone. I hope you find a solution!


Shoot, I'm really sorry to hear about the back/neck issues!! I've had back issues and it is the absolute pits. I've also had some chronic pain issues in my hips and Jan 4 I had hip replacement surgery on one side and it's the best thing I've ever done! I sure hope you get some relief/answers/help very soon. It's so distressing to feel like we can't take care of our family how we'd like.
The sweater is beautiful!!
