Today's post is to be about how we bettered ourselves craft-wise over the last year...
The beginning of 2010 saw me make up my mind I was going to get back into crocheting whether my hands liked it or not! Some arthritis, especially in the left hand, made me think that crocheting would make everything worse.
Well, I bought my Clover hooks...already had my stash. Hmm, this just might work. My hands, esp. the left one, felt better -- not as "swollen" or stiff; both were more flexible. I couldn't believe this!
Well, it didn't take me long to start making plans. Afghans, squares, garlands, all kinds of yarny goodness floated through my brain! I do miss making doilies though. I wonder if Clover makes small size hooks with big handles?
Yes, crochet still makes a difference in how my hands feel. I didn't crochet yesterday; NOT once. (I did look at patterns though.) And my hands feel "swollen" and stiff, maybe not as bad as before; but I can definitely tell the difference. And, THAT is a good feeling.
See you tomorrow for Day 3,
