Hand Care for Crocheters, Knitters, Crafters

Image
I haven't been able to crochet for quite a while now. I stopped crocheting large items for the Bespoke Crochet atelier to give my hands a rest. Earlier this month I made a small item and wrote the pattern now available in my Ravelry store . Making small items and writing patterns give my hands some rest without giving up crocheting entirely. However, while working on a new design, I realised I can't even crochet for a few minutes. Well at least, I decided not to continue crocheting as soon as I felt uncomfortable. I don't want to make things worse. I've been crocheting for many years and have had no troubles. The problem started when work with the pigs became heavier. At some point, I lifted something heavy (the pig feeding trough) with my left hand and that sprained my wrist. Then after a couple of weeks, I tried to force open the gate to the pen and hurt my right hand. So, now both hands experience pain and become extraordinarily tired whenever I try to crochet
