Those are interesting, Bonnie. My right hand is not completely disabled -
doesn't work right and cramps if I use it very much. All those devices
replace the left hand. I guess one could adjust, but the whole knitting
would have to be relearned. Anyway, I still find plenty to do to keep me
and I can do Spider Solitaire on the computer with my left hand.
Hope you have a delightful New Year's Eve. Chet has bought a bottle of
champagne, so I guess we'll watch the ball drop on television. He has just
been diagnosed with shingles, so maybe he won't want to stay up. Since
we get up at 5:00 AM on Sundays to go to early church, I expect I will give
Have a good one,

Have you looked for a device for the handicapped for knitting?

I have at least two partially finished sweaters in a work basket. For years
I knotted constantly - always took my knitting to meetings, etc. I made
sweaters, stoles, numerous other things for family, friends, and even sold
some. A friend who had connections at Bloomingdales' said she could
place my sweaters there, but I didn't want to be tied down to making the
same thing over and over. The biggest pleasure was selecting new yarns,
planning patterns, making up new stitches, etc. I did the most knitting in
the fall and early winter watching football games on television. Then,
ten years ago in one of my rounds of Lyme disease, my right hand stopped
working right. I had had some degree of ulnar neuropathy for years, but not
enough to keep me from knitting, but that time it did. I miss knitting
Every once in a while I go back and try again, but it just doesn't work any
more. I haven't been able to watch football this season, either.
I have always hated to leave a job unfinished, but for the past year or so
has seemed thatI was always working on something that I couldn't finish
until I had a further bit of information from someone I couldn't quite
pin down. Spent a lot of frustrating time that way getting Horticulture
set up across the state, and I can see it coming at me again this spring.
well, I'm officially retired from that job, even though I still do it, so
year I'll just quit and let someone else cope.
Happy New Year to all of you. May 2012 be a great one in your gardens.
