Arthritis PainKillers

Hey Knitters, crochets and everyone else. What would you recommend to use relieve pain brought on from repetitive knitting? Husband swears Tylenol or acetaminophen is just as good for my pain but I'm needing to take several just to dull the pain and that just empties the bottle quicker. Then the hubby is making comments that I'm taking them like candy. I can't win. I would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions on this subject please. Thanks.

You need to stop knitting when your wrists begin aching. By continuing to knit, you could be causing more damage and may develop carpal tunnel or tendonitis. If the pain occurs frequently, I would take a few days break from knitting. Sometimes if you lay on your arms while your sleeping or watching tv, it can cause this problem.

As far as pain killers go, I prefer Aleve.

I would take the red skein and the red sequin skein, if I got this. I would make a lace shawl, using the sequin yarn for an extra lacy border.
Or, I would take the smoky blue-brown and make a super cute halter, using the gold sequin yarn for the border and maybe some super dazzling colorwork!

"Ladder" Problem when knitting part 2

Trying to find a solution to the “ladder” problem when I knit with double pointed needles.
This web site is another excellence source when knitting called “Techknitting”
Great pictures that show what ladders are:
 Ladder when knitting.
The technique I am using from the site is this one:
 Move change point every round
From web site”

“In the meantime, though, try this trick–Because ladders occur where tension changes are stacked up in the same column, it is possible to avoid ladders by un-stacking the tension changes.Stated otherwise, if on every round, you move the point at which the tension changes — the change point for the dpn’s– there simply cannot be any ladders.”
This seems to be working you have to be sure to use markers so you know where the end of each set of stitches is, so you can follow pattern instructions for each row.





 


I love this idea, its better than what i’ve been doing. I pull my tension as tight as i can between needles and when working stockinette, i just twist one stitch on the right of the ladder. It works well, but only for stockinette. And I’ve noticed that my ladders only really get bad when I use metal dpns as apposed to my wooden ones

yarn stash porn!!!
these are all my nice yarns from the LYS

Finished the socks for my bf’s mom. Her feet are longer than mine, so the lace is a little scrunched up on the foot, lol. The pattern is from the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits, pattern Herbology Socks

I hate when you need to look something up but you don’t know what to put into google and you’re just like I KNOW THERE’S A WAY TO DO THIS BUT HOW DO I CALL IT

And now I’m stuck watching literally 40 minutes of really boring youtube videos. 

i just need to know how to carry yarn in two-color knitting when it’s too far to carry but not too far to cut???? or should i give up and make 3 equally-sized green yarn balls???

they are called “floats” and there are lots of youtube vidoes on how to do it correctly. I hope this helped! :)

So even thought my boyfriend cheated on me, we’re still together. These are for his mom for mother’s day. Shes been there for me when my own mom wasn’t. Knitting has really been my therapy through all this, helping to keep my mind off negative things…
Destashing on my Etsy shop. You can even grab some discontinued Caron Jewel Box yarn! My stash has really gotten out of control and this is me downsizing!!! Visit my shop here.
