Ergonomic Crochet Handle
When I started knitting I soon found out it is easier on my hands than crocheting and haven't really crocheted since. I kept thinking I would try one of the ergonomic handles but never really wanted to order online then find out it wasn't what I wanted or needed. Last night at Walmart I saw one. I can crochet again! Whether I will do much crocheting is yet to be seen, but the test drive with the handle showed me it won't bother my hands as much. My DD who has rheumatoid arthritis really can't crochet anymore and I want her to try it too. I got the Boye brand for $5.97 because that's what was in the store; it has washers for adapting to the different size hooks B through K and the handle is easily changed from one hook to another. I expect other brands are similar. I thought I'd share this for anyone who might find it useful either for yourself or for a friend or loved one.
