Quoting *Momlette*:" Is there a specific crochet/knitting thread? It would be nice to have one to pop in and ask questions and maybe share our projects?! What do you ladies think??"


I think it would be a good idea, as long as we can attempt to keep the negativity out of it.



I used to be in the Cloth Diaper Rock Bitches, but well they're pretty nasty in there.



So if that can be avoided I'll join.



I've been crocheting for over 20 years. I have lots of info and help to give!

My mom is a knitter, my grandmother the crocheter. And I do both. My mom had the surgery on both hands. She said it helped her, but I heard from a few people that they were worse off after the surgery than before.
I can't stop! It's like my therapy. But I woke up the other morning and my hand was numb to just under my elbow. Sadly, mine isn't bad enough yet to where they will even refer me for physical therapy.

Mine doesn't get to my elbow yet. It goes mid arm. So I'm lucky I guess.



And I'm left handed so it's only in my left hand.
