A Crafty Solution!
Created By: Marcia Estes

I learned to knit while in college. After graduating, I began a 36 year teaching career, enjoying every minute of teaching 1st graders how to read! With a husband, a home and all those 1st graders to keep me busy, I put the needles and yarn away thinking I just didn't have time for knitting! One day, soon after I had retired, I tripped, fell and broke my wrist! At age 61, I found myself wondering where those needles were hiding. Six weeks in a cast gave me time to think and search, determined to do my own therapy for my broken bone and swollen fingers! My idea worked! The doctor told me that it looked like I could provide my own exercise, and he would not have to worry about recommending any professional therapy to get me through the rest of the healing process! Knitting is a great way to exercise all those muscles in the wrist, hand and fingers! It took months to get that right hand feeling normal again, but I've been knitting ever since the cast came off! (That was 5 years ago!) Not only have I been able to provide hand knit gifts for family and friends, but I also enjoy displaying/selling my things at craft fairs each fall! The money I earn is put to good use when I go to the yarn shop looking for new projects! I realize now what I had been missing all those years. As a teacher, I could have used knitting as a wonderful stress reliever, but then I probably would never have put them aside long enough to get all those papers graded!
