Sit Up Straight!

My back has been a little achy lately.  It’s possible that it’s from work (where I’ve been schlepping around 40-pound bags of clay), or it’s possible that it’s from my terrible, terrible posture.

So, this is just a little PSA (mostly to myself, because if I don’t write something down, I immediately forget it) to remember proper posture while you knit.  Sit up straight, with your feet firmly planted on the ground, elbows in and comfortable.  Your back and shoulders will thank you.

Although, who am I kidding?  This is how I usually knit:

    I have terrible posture too. I think it’s from the time I was a child, when I would read for hours in the same hunched position. I find it hard to sit up straight for any length of time, and constantly have to remind myself to do it! Hopefully it will become second nature one day!

    I slouch too and especially at work where I do telemarketing. We all try to remind ourselves and each other to sit up straight–not only for posture reasons but because people can hear in your voice if you’re alert or laying back in your chair!
