Hi, my name is Sherri and I live in Seattle. I've been knitting for afA for a couple of years, and I am joining the blog now. What beautiful work you all do! I realized that I didn't have anything done yet for this campaign so I whipped up a hat and mittens in super bulky wool. I just got a request from my son for hand-knit knee-hi socks for his wife for Christmas, so I guess I'd better get them done in a hurry! I'm glad the current afA campaign goes beyond Christmas! I have a couple of questions. First of all, do any of you have any good remedies for sore hands when you have been knitting rather a lot at one time? I've tried that therapeutic fingerless glove thing but it made my fingers bloat where they stick out of the holes. I probably got the wrong size, only I don't remember what size I got, so I haven't bought another one. I'm not sure I would like it. However, if there is someone out there who has one and likes it, I may try again. The other question, is there anyone in Seattle who knits for afA? I'd love to get together to knit sometime. Thanks!
