Oh my aching thumb!

Dritz Crafter's Thumb Glove

Dritz Crafter’s Thumb Glove

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?

I do a lot of different things. I am a horse racing photographer, I make jewelry, and I crochet. Here I will mostly concentrate on crochet. I live in Ontario, Canada, now but I am from the deep South and lived in Alabama before I moved here.
