Not a good week

Not had a good week. Been very tired all week ,Arthritis has been painful all week too. I don't know why ,So no knitting . This is bad for me as I get fidgety and need to keep my hands occupied. Grandkids here most week which is always a great temptation.

But I did swim 24 lengths of the local pool. So let's hope this week is better

Good weight loss to every body

Sorry to hear that you've had a bad week, Hazelnnett, will you be joining us at the Sunday weigh-in?

Keep up with the swimming, that's great exercise and think about investing in a warm wax machine for the arthritis in your hands. It's impossible to eat with both hands covered in wax and plastic bags! ;)

Wishing you a much better week :)

My physio gave me a thick sponge wedge to squeeze for my hands when they flare up and it really helped It's rotten isn't and I can't bear not to be knitting I really hope you will be feeling much better this week 😀

Hello Hazelnnet, the warm wax really does give relief for arthritic hands, I did not know you can buy them for home use. My mother in law had painful hands and had to stop knitting, she found that she could crochet.

Thank you. I have knitted since 14years old and now I am 68 . So I suppose I haven't done bad. But I love knitting I have got 4 grandchildren that came within 4 years so I was constantly knitting. I get a feel good feeling when I touch wool and buy patterns as others buy magazines .

A bit sad you may say .

Not sad a tall. I understand entirely. I am not a knitter but I do embroidery and the thrill of browsing the racks of different coloured threads and starting a new project gives me a real buzz. Bye the way have you tried bamboo knitting needles? I expect you have, it was just a thought

Hi Hazelnnett,

Sorry to hear about your arthritis. I'm not sure if you've done this already, but you might find it helpful to check out the arthritis section of Health Unlocked. healthunlocked.com/arthriti...
