I just came by to say hi and I miss being here :(
I developed pretty bad tendinitis in my right arm last summer. Unfortunately it was from knitting. I had hoped resting it would help. But after many months of healing just knitting for a few minutes set me back again. :(

Thank you. Do you know of anyone who has had this problem? Did they have to stop knitting entirely like I have. I keep hoping I'll be able to pick up knitting again.

Oh that would totally be the pits!!!! I'm SO sorry! I know how I would feel if I couldn't knit. :( Hopefully someone on here will have some suggestions for you.

Thank you Wanda. It was very difficult, especially at first. During the times I used to knit I just didn't know what to do with myself. Now I see my half finished project and it just makes me sad :( .

Have you looked into getting physical therapy for it. I work at an outpatient facility where one of the services we offer is physical therapy and people say it desperately helps.

That's horrible! Thank God I didn't have to give up knitting when I got frozen shoulder.

I will say, that when I injured the tendon in my right thumb, I couldn't knit for a couple of months and when I took it back up I began resting my left needle on my left thigh (what else are mouse pads for?) and it made it so much easier without the weight of my project causing me to tense up that part of my hand/arm. Which just shows we will find a way to do what we love.

I sprained my pinkie/road rash'd my right hand when I tripped running to catch a bus, so I couldn't knit for a few days (or wash my hair properly, or easily wash dishes or do kind of anything) horrible!
