I have been crocheting a lot lately and after I finished a full size blanket out of Bernat Blanket Yarn, my thumb was incredibly sore at the base. After bit of reading, I found this was probably the beginning of thumb arthritis brought on by straining it with overuse. I have since been on the look out for something to help with this. I tried a thumb stabilizer brace from the drug store (Mueller thumb stabilizer brace) and it was OK but a bit cumbersome to wear while I crochet. I am now trying the Dritz Crafter’s Thumb Glove which seems to be working out better.
Has anyone else had a similar problem or do you have any better suggestions to help with thumb pain while crocheting?
