Question - kind of worried
Yesterday I knit and crocheted a lot. The finger I rest my hook and one of my needles on on my right hand ring finger, is sore and swollen today......... has anyone had this happened? I'm kind of freaked. I hope I just bruised it

my fingers get their share of use. Just rest them a bit. Unfortunately it makes you slow with your work when you have to do that. But it gets less over time, I think.

Is it the skin or a joint that is swollen?

It's on my ring finger in the middle between the middle joint and the top joint. It's puffed out and sore. But I can bend it now. It's still swollen but doesn't hurt unless I try to crochet. LOL I think I'll be resting my finger a few days

This happens to me all the time. Just consider it a battle scar.

I've gotten it from the pointy circulars I've used this past week. Band-aids work great if it's too tender.

Running a little OT, but what is your avatar, it looks like Loki/Gabriel from Supernatural.

I haven't gone bowling in years, but that happens to me when I bowl. I think it's the same thing.. pressure on one area for a long period of time...Or in my case from a heavy ball for a short amount of time. I used to get ice water and stick my finger in it. It helped a little.
