Proof is in the Pudding

I had a delightful time teaching today.  While doing so I met a lady who said she had to give up knitting -- her hands hurt too much doing it.

I advised her that many doctors recommend that their patients with arthritis take up crocheting.  In doing so, it keeps the fingers nimble.

The image here was taken the other day when I took my daughter to another part of the building ... it's a poster of a doctor advertising his speciality.  Note the crocheting hands!

But don't take my word for it.  If you have arthritis be sure to visit your doctor and inquire.  I'm sure he/she will tell you what I'm saying here ... keeping the fingers nimble helps keep the swelling & the pain away and what better way than with crochet?
