Fiber Therapy

July 20th, 2007  |  You're Being (Web) Paged

Holy cow. Or should I say sheep? I had no idea there were so many knitting nurses out there. A recent search lead me to many blogs by nurses who knit. As a knitting fool my self, I am curious as to why so many of us pick up the needles and yarn after hitting the units.

Can I just say how jealous I am of Nelda? She knits beautiful socks. And she’s obsessed. Could this be from hours of hard work on the floor? Is she so obsessed that she needs to knit like crazy? Well, I say keep on knitting!

Jen is a NICU nurse currently suffering from some carpal tunnel. Her knitting therapy is suffering, so instead she is ranting about the nursing shortage and nurse-patient ratios.

And I’m so happy to see Gail, AKA Yarnnut, is volunteering as a doula. And after reading about some of the patients she cares for, I can see why she needs the fiber therapy.

Woolywoman is a self proclaimed crazy person who’s a nurse and knitting fiend. She’s even met some knitting celebrities. And Barbara knits to de-stress as well; head on over and congratulate her on her new CDE credential.

So how can you start some fiber therapy? You can check out Knitting Help for free online video tutorials. Cheap but totally cool supplies can be found at Knit Picks. Now go start your fiber therapy! There is nothing like the feel of needles that don’t actually break someone’s skin that create beautiful items.

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to understand so
    much about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with some p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, however instead of that,
    that is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I’ll
    certainly be back.

    You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I might never
    understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad for me.

    I’m having a look forward in your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!

  • James Frazer Mann said on August 18th, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after
    I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over
    again. Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be working with?

    I’m having some small security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any recommendations?
