Sweaty Hands
Hi
I am new and have been Knitting for a Month now. My question is: every so often my hnds will sweat which causes to yarn to not move freely. It has gotton to the point that the yarn won't move at all. I have tried baby powder to help this but it makes it worse. I have alos set a fan right on my hands and that doesnt work.
Does anyone know of a way to stop this or make the yarn workable even if I cant get my hands to quit sweating?
Thanks

You need some air conditioning.

Could it be that you are nervous and or tense sometimes when you knit.

Is it just your hands? Could it be a hormonal shift? For those of us dealing with menopausal symptoms sweating, be it hands or other body parts, can be problematic. When it hits me I have to decide to either ride it out ....it does end eventually!...or just put down my work for a bit.

Thanks to both of you!. I never thought of either of that but either one could be it.
Again thanks!

I also put down the knitting and go wash my hands and hold them under cold water for a few seconds and then go back to knitting. Sometimes I just don't want to walk away.
