Yup, some anti-inflammatory gel and a support bandage. I have an inflamed tendon in my thumb caused by… knitting. I’ve got a case of RSI from lots of repetitive knitting, and worsened by being back at school giving kids encouraging thumbs-ups!
It is so hard to rest my hand and manage without, so today I have strapped it up in the hope it will stop me moving it. Opposable thumbs are used more than I realised!
In the meantime I’m getting my crafting fix from reading old issues of Threads for jacket tips, and tweeting about the Great British Sewing Bee (I’m @crafty_alibobs)
oh no! hope it gets better soon.
Ouch! Hope it gets better quickly!
Get well soon.
Thanks for the good wishes. It’s much better than yesterday after being strapped up at school all day, so hopefully be knitting again in a few weeks…
