Ongoing ‘knitter’s thumb’

Two weeks ago at around this time in the evening I felt the beginning of the strain in my right thumb. This left me with a bandaged thumb/hand for six days barely being able to use my hand without pain for four of them.

Since then I have been very cautious and hardly knitted or crochet, always worrying that the pain will return, until the weekend just gone. I estimate that I crochet about two hours on #doodleblanket spread out throughout the afternoon and evening on Sunday.

Today I can feel the strain again very strongly. Not bad enough to be wearing another bandage, but bad enough to feel pain with most movements.
