My ring finger on my left hand keeps going numb. I'm hoping it has something to do with the needles I am using, because I've been using size 2 needle for about 2 months now on toys for the nephews. I'm almost finished with the toys, so I'm hoping the numbness goes away. The thing is, if I don't knit for a few days it goes away, but as soon as I start back up, it goes numb again. And it's not like a leg falling asleep, where you can "wake it back up." When this happens, it stays for about 24 hours. I think the small needles sit right in the crook of that knuckle and cut off circulation. Have any of you ever had this kind of problem? I'm too young to have to give up knitting.
