You can get gloves and sleeves that are supposed to help with carpal tunnel. http://www.patternworks.com/productd...EVE-trade;.htm

I've also seen them at Jo-Ann's. I've never used them though so I can't comment on how well they work.

My husband half joked about getting me the gloves (I have joint problems all over, but I have been tested and I don't have arthritis).

It's the repetitive motion, I think. You get on a knitting roll and you don't stop knitting for a long time, it can really start to sting. >.< If anyone HAS used those gloves, I'm curious to know if they work.

I know some crossstitchers use them too. They help for the repetitive motion, and I've used something similar for tendonitis.

I should haul my knifty knitters out of storage. Rachael, you're inspiring me to try them again.

Mistress, I'm glad the bandaid idea worked for you.
