Lupus flares can stop me from having a good nights sleep but they will not stop knitting. Maybe just slow it down a bit. My hands feel like hot heavy rocks and every joint in my body is at war.
I am not the writer in the family, that's my oldest daughter.
I did find Alison J. Hyde,a knitter with Lupus who writes beautifully. Reading her Blog helps put words to living with Lupus pain. Her knitting, patterns, writting and spirit are an inspiration to all with Lupus.
The Embossed Diamonds is one of her amazing patterns I hope to try.
The first thing I did when I was diagnosed with Lupus was go to the computer to find Lupus Foundation of America. The site is very informative as are Lupus Now and the newsletters I receive.
The Lupus Book by Dr.Daniel J. Wallace still helps me through hard times.
