Gimping Around

On July 4th, while at my son's house, I did something to a knee that left me somewhat painful.  Don't know what exactly I did, but I think that it may have happened while chasing Jemma through the backyard.  At any rate, I listened to my body and did not attend yoga during the following week (last week).  

I was back in class last night, and George really put us through our paces.  He is one fine teacher.  By the time I arrived home, I realized that a week off does not work for a 68 yo body.  You need your fix frequently to stay limber.  Today, I am a bit sore.  He was concentrating on our hip flexors, so the hips/low back are speaking to me, and my shoulders are telling me that I have not done a headstand for over a week.

Of course, if your knee hurts when you bend it, you can't do standing poses or inversions too well.  Oh, well ... get over it and go on.  I did.


  1. Hi Brenda! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. I used size 5 needles on my daughter's Rusted Root, followed the XS size instructions, and used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease yarn, which is I think worsted weight. Hope that helps! Good luck!

  2. I am curious as to the age of your daughter. My great-granddaughter must be a bigger girl than yours (she is 8, but is a very big girl). At any rate, I stopped before long and started over, making the root-less Rusted Root in the XS size. That worked out okay. I gave you and Sarah Johnson credit for this project on today's post.
