Hello! I’m new here but I was hoping to get some ideas on how to knit more comfortably and efficiently. There isn’t a lot of info on this online and it’s hard to even do a search for.
I’m doing several arts and crafts shows this spring and need to knit fast to get all the items done in time. I’m finding that when I work with certain yarns ( cotton in particular) my fingers start to become sore and raw after a few days of work. So in this case, I was wondering if there are any tips on how to cover / bandage fingers without sacrificing a lot of motion? I tried some snug gloves but it hindered more than helped.
Also, I’m finding that where I chose to sit while I work brings another host of problems. I try to arrange pillows around my arms to take some of the strain off but then sitting is uncomfortable for so long. So I’d like to try to find a way to stand while I knit maybe?
What do some of you here do to knit more comfortably that enables you to knit fast but not get hand / leg / or butt cramps …I wish there was a special knitters pillow out there but I’ve yet to find anything like that.
Any ideas and advice? Thanks!
