How did I hurt my back yesterday? I had a great walk in the morning. I did a little exercise in the afternoon. I was feeling good. It was too hot to knit, too hot to pull out the sewing machine, so I thought to myself, “A little amigurimi might satisfy my making jones.” Then, I found the cutest pattern for a hippo, and it was on.
What I didn’t do was look at the pattern very closely beforehand. I thought it was going to be just a wee hippo. The thing I made is rather large. It took me 5 hours to make, and I somehow hurt my back while doing it. Maybe the way I was sitting. It’s cute, though. Too bad there’s not workers’ compensation for crocheting related injuries!
