LOL, Angela, I knit in bed, of course, it's due to my disability, but I'm usually found propped on pillows in a lounging position with a heating pad...yes, I have fallen asleep many times when I knit...but haven't lost a st

Hey, Angela. Hope you are feeling better today and can get back to knitting soon. I have the exact same problem--I call it Knitters Knuckle! --on my left hand--my non-dominant hand. The joint closest to my fingernail on my middle finger swells up and hurts like the Dickens when I knit alot. I've been knitting like crazy on a charity project and my finger is so swollen I can't bend it. So I have to lay off knitting for awhile :crying: But one good side effect--that stiff middle finger sure makes it easier to flip people off. Just kidding.
I think I have same problem as you Purlygyrl. Only it is my thumb, very painful, a little swollen. Sends pins and needles into my thumb and arm. It is getting better because I have not knit for 5 weeks :( I will try and knit soon, I hope pain does not come back.
Well, mine doesn't get swollen, and its my knuckle on my right hand, middle finger, sometimes ring finger - the bottom knuckle closest to my palm amd most times the muscle underneath my knuckles. No swelling just some aches. It comes and goes still. I still can't think of another way to hold the needles. Now I am crocheting though... I have a bag I HAVE to finish. The ache is still there, just with a hook.
