If you've not tried the Portugese knitting, you might give it a go. My hands are feeling stiffish this morning so I think I'll wash dishes by hand before I knit today.
I wonder if I should ask my grandmother if i could borrow one of her metal knitting needles? metal's slippery is it not? If the plastic's not helping (sorry sis) and the bamboo isn't slippery enough, how about the metal?
