Six weeks ago I went to the hand therapist and I've been very, very compliant about following her instructions. And it's gone really well, I'm basically not in pain, and my hands don't go numb when I knit, and I've had some serious knitting time over the last month. So that's all good. One of the exercises that can help nerve problems like I have is learning to juggle, (I was pretty happy it said "learning to juggle" rather than actually juggling, because I still can't keep more than two balls in the air). so I made some juggling balls :
These are quite nice, but I thought it might be nicer to have some that are knit or crocheted. I knit this one from the "oh Balls" pattern (and watched the movie the pattern talks about too). I need to get around to knitting or crocheting to more, to have a set. I haven't decided if I'm going to make them all matching, or experiment with different patterns. Either way, it's going to take a lot more work until i actually can claim to be a proficient juggler!
