Knitters Pinky

I had been skeptical of knitterly pain. I didn't think such a thing existed. Until now. My pinky is in quite a bit of pain. It hurts if it's extended, or even if it's curled up. The most interesting thing of all of this is that my pinky is in no way related to the knitting event. It just sits next to my hand as I insert the needle and wrap the yarn around it. It sits there, curled up, and goes along with the rest of the hand for a ride. I've no idea what to do.

I promise I'm not trying to be like those cool kids at Michelle or Jessamyn. I stay far far away from the kitchen and don't touch such sharp knives. The (arguably) good thing is that I don't think I'll be knitting much today so my pinky can have a rest. There's a couple people leaving our company, so we've organized a happy hour to see them off. Hopefully the booze will help where Advil could not!

Awwww! Hope your finger gets better soon. I had some finger issues a few weeks back, some rest from knitting (god damn that was hard) and moving away from dpns with socks really helped. Hope the rest helps you too.

Sorry about the finger, Jenn...follow your own advice and stay away from knives or it will get worse! The Roundabout looks so good in the color so far!

Do you mean the webring or the Stitchn' Bitch NYC link? The SNB NYC one should take you to Yahoo. I just tried it and it told me i had to be a memeber which just means you have to sign in.

damn, i really need to get that haloscan commenter whatsit.

I've knitted non stop for the last 8 month. My pinky hurts every morning and I can't make a fist, all the other fingers comply but the pinky stays stiff. After half an hour I'm good to go again. I can't stop knitting, what is a little pain in my little finger? ;o)
