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 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! :)
