Well I finally broke down and went to the Doctor, about the pain in my left wrist and thumb, turns out ( x-ray) I have arthritis in the joints and one is pretty inflamed! So I have to go part time with the Grooming (day job), and wear a brace with a thumb splint, day and night for the next 6 months. Not real sure when I will be able to crochet again, very sad about this, as I just love crocheting, thank goodness I can still knit. And on a lighter note , I do love knitting too!
Moral of this story! Take care of those hands lady's and gents, exercise them, take breaks and happy crafting!
