#81 Posture Awareness for Knitters and Crocheters

Do you have aches and pains when you knit or crochet?

It’s heartbreaking when the thing we love so much causes us pain or even worse – injuries. I was recently told that my posture while knitting and crocheting had caused some serious irritation in my shoulders leaving me with painful mornings and sleepless nights. I’m lucky. I caught it before it got too bad. That’s why today, as we move into our busy season, I want to bring awareness to your posture and habits while knitting and crocheting so you can avoid any potential issues that could be looming around the corner.

It’s just you and me today in a mini-workshop episode where we hash out suggestions from myself and the Instagram community on ways to keep posture top of mind and top priority while you knit and crochet.

You’ll Learn

  • The shoulder story that led to this episode
  • Five things I have implemented in my life (and that you can implement too) to improve posture
  • Thirty different suggestions from the Bhooked Instagram Community about maintaining proper posture
