Hello folks, l'm not sure if l give my name or not but anyway here goes. I have suffered with the dreaded big A for many years and now cannot look forward to one of my favourite hobbies. I loved knitting but my fingers are sore now. Still I suppose that comes with age. Anyway folks I will try to make my odd comments interesting and it's lovely to join Versus Arthritis. Bye for now.

    Hello @Benny

    Welcome to the online community and thank you for joining us.

    So you have had arthritis for many years but it has now come to the point where you are no longer able to partake in your favourite hobby, knitting. You are looking forward to joining in the with the online community.

    @Benny , my philosophy has always been to take up something new and interesrimg to compensate for what I've had to give up. That way I've discovered things I never knew I'd love.

    Maybe, for you, only a tweak is necessary. What about a knitting machine?

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
