my dd's grandmother is facing surgery to remove an infected portion of bone (infection from a cat bite....long story).
i've wanted to teach her how to knit, but hesitated b/c she was doing tons of antibiotics and waiting for her finger to heal. since it seems she may lose all or most of her index finger, i'm wondering if anyone here has a similar condition, but still knits.
i tried doing it without my index finger and actually had pretty good luck. i'm thinking since she will be learning WITHOUT the finger, it might not be too hard for her.
any advice on how to teach her?
btw, she is a crocheter from waaaaaaaaaaay back, so i know she loves to craft and work with fibers.
and of course, any good mojo/strength/vibes/prayers you can spare would be most appreciated. she is a dear lady.
thank you so much!
