Another Handy Helper for Needlework -- Thera Glove

Here's another recommendation for a product that has helped me a lot. I have loved doing handwork for most of my life, but in the past few years I've had a hard time working at it for as long as I'd like because of the dreaded Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Last year while on my annual vacation visit to Patternworks, I took the plunge and purchased a pair of Thera Gloves. They are ugly and look funny on my hands, but I have to say, they make a difference. I found when wearing them that I can actually keep knitting or crocheting for a much longer time in one sitting than without them. In the winter, they keep my hands warm which makes it easier to stitch. Yet in the warmer weather, they are not so heavy as to make them uncomfortable to wear so I can still use them and keep at my handwork.

You can find these on many websites and in most craft or needlework shops, so shop around before you buy to make sure you get the best price. Thera Glove also has their own website where you can see their complete product line. They have colors and velcro wrist bands and Thera sleeves and even animal print gloves!

Have you found something that helps you continue stitching? Leave a comment and let everyone know about it!
