Achy hands and arms were a big reason I wanted to loosen up my knitting. It helped. A lot.

It really is amazing the difference it makes loosening up just a little bit.

Nice autocorrect in my post about pain. At least it sorta fit this time and you got my point.

Yes. Jan is referring to me lol! Yep mee. I started knitting way too tightly so in attempt to see if it was the tightness causing finger/hand pain i tried knitting looser. Its helped. :-)

Perhaps practice knitting some swatches before the actual piece to get your tension right? Practice makes perfect n all that jazz :-)

I can do the knit stitches without pulling on the yarn, but for some reason I keep wanting to tighten up those purl stitches. I'm trying a bunch of different yarn holds, so hopefully eventually I'll get it!!
