Dangerous Pastimes

It's happened again!


This time in my other arm.

 - hurts to lift things up
- tender muscles in the forearm
- pain down to wrist

Dangerous hobby this crocheting!

*RCI - Repetitive Crochet Injury

Check out this site and this site.


  1. Ha! I know what you mean mum, I have had a bad case of RKI (knitting sadly affects my neck and shoulders and I love to knit). I have to carry on through the pain barrier! What we crafty folk have to put up with eh?

  2. Oh woe, really feel for you Mum. When its something you enjoy being prevented is the pits. Hope it doesnt last long.

  3. hahaha, shouldn't laugh but I understand having recently hand punched 10,000 hearts hubby made me take ibuprofen and it was brilliant, worked a treat! x

  4. I hope you get better soon, mum. Thank you for sharing those articles. xx

  5. The same here at them moment and this rug is taking forever and now I am close to the end the arms are killing me!!! I am determined to get it done but at least work of a day rests those muscles...hope you are feeling less painful today.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
