RSI occurs when the muscles and tendons in your wrists and fingers become strained by repeated movement. This in turn causes the damaged muscles to contract, reducing their range of movement. At the same time the sheaths housing your tendons can run out of lubrication, causing chafing
Key signs that you are suffering from RSI include:
• Aches and pain
If you experience any of these symptoms before, during computing, crocheting , knitting, don’t ignore them! It’s vital to rest, as continuing to do that activity could make the problem worse as the muscles and tendons become more swollen and suffer further chafing
nothing seems to help except strict rest, no crocheting at all, no lifting, and no typing except with my left hand and Im so slow that at times it is easier to do nothing at all, usually for at least a week or more
Have you ever suffered from this? How long did it take to recover?
On a happier note I ordered the above yarn the week before alexander palace show, I will post pictures from this years show, shortly. I bought mine from here. At the fabulous price of £1.79 cheaper them a pot of tea. 206m of mercerised cotton and it comes in all these fabulous shades. I love crochet cotton I bought 10 shades not sure what I'm making but at present they are sat in a very deep white dish. They remind me of Christmas baubles
