I'm sorry to hear that you have health issues again. Jeanne......but you are always such a trooper!!!...finding the positives in everything. Like Glo, you do make me giggle.
From one left hander to another...you go girl !!
Thank you Bev. I was writing, rather "interestingly" with my right hand for a while then one finger typing on this computer but there's always a way to do things eh? It's good to be back here again after a fair time away. I am finding that crocheting is doing my left hand and arm more good than the physiotherapy exercises. I thought it might! Onwards!
Jeanne, I sympathise with what you're going through, and I so admire your positive approach. I finished my chemo in January and thankfully it has been successful, so I know there is light at the end of the tunnel! I'm still not back to full strength, but am so happy I can knit and crochet again, after a few weeks of not being able to. Stay strong!
Thank you Lesley for letting me know that some loss of strength is expected. I've been a bit wobbly today and that explains it. :) Definitely "staying strong".
I've misplaced who it was that said they were challenged by reading patterns, but I wanted to say that I find some patterns I "get" and others I totally struggle with, even those that are proclaimed "simple". So if you find one pattern isn't working, please try another. I printed off several nice crochet square patterns and did Mary Anne Lokken's chain-stitch square easily but the next one I struggled with. So I tossed that 2nd print out and went to a 3rd pattern, which is more complicated looking but I found it easier. GO FIGURE. I'm just saying our brains all work different ways and on different days they can also work different ways! I can vouch for that one. Just don't give up. Whatever you can do is GREAT in knitting or crocheting. Power on girls, power on. (and guys if there's any!)
