Well I am still not crocheting!
My hands are somewhat better.
As you see, this crochet lark could quite easily be the culprit to my woes!
So thats the gang for now...
..hopefully new friends will arrive
just as soon as my thumbs will allow me!
Thanks for all your concern!
Especially to Heather at Little tin bird.
Who has been crocheting with the same cotton yarn and has reassured me that the pain is probably due to the type of yarn, as it is a lot stiffer to use than wool, so requires more effort.
(ouch maybe not hehe)
