The way I live my life is stamped on my body. In the thick calluses from ill-fitting running shoes (although, to be fair, this is the best fit I’ve ever found. My feet are just oddly shaped). In the slight hunch of my desk-job shoulders (I’m working on it). And lately, I’ve been noticing something new.
Knitting calluses. I’ve got a good one forming on my left index finger: the one I often use to nudge the tip of my needle after I’ve looped the yarn. Other knitters must get these too. Is this the sign of a bad habit? I’ve never made a study of proper needle use.
Does knitting leave a mark on your body?
