See my wrister below. I have arthritis complicated by another weird, unidentified condition in my right arm. Thought a wrister would help & found a pattern in Creative Knitting for wristers in three yarn weights. Figured bulky would work fast, & -FOUND BULKY TAPESTRY YARN in my needlepoint stash (mind you, DMC spun in France bulky wool, at 79cents ea),
& knitted a wrister. & FOUND that my gramma was right.
One should not "knit with the fingers" but with the needles (meaning: do not push, pull or otherwise "finger" the yarn; USE THE NEEDLES). She kept telling me I was forming the stitch properly & did not need to push-pull the yarn, but I guess I did not have faith.... But now, being unable to extend my index finger, I found myself purling (continental style) without finger movements! Now my husband's sweater is getting finished a lot faster!
