Sock Summit 2011! Yay!

Carson Demers‘s
Knitting Happily Ever After – Ergonomics For Knitters class is EXCELLENT!

If you have ever had an ache or twinge or soreness or numbness, you will learn what it is, what is causing it, and how to prevent it.

Carson Demers is a physical therapist and a knitter, so he knows what we are doing.
He knows knitters’ moves and habits and obsessive tendencies(!) and he knows what we are doing to our bodies.
He started by asking each of us what our concerns were and then addressed all of them and more by explaining what is going on with our muscles, tendons, nerves, cartilage, bones, ligaments when we knit.
He taught us how to alleviate strain and prevent injury, everything from how we hold our knitting and sit to the environment around us to the projects we choose.
It is easier to correct injury causing movements and positions when we know what they are and what they are doing to us!
By the time class was finished I was already catching myself and learning to correct myself.
He’s funny too!
Take his class if you get a chance!

Oh! and the Marketplace!
