Finger Burn

Can you see how the yarn rests on my tension hand while I crochet? This is the result of the crochet marathon I have been on for the past month. This is the point where I put a band-aid on it. Also, Clover makes a little "yarn guide" thingy that you can put on your finger to hold the yarn. I have a few of those too. In the past, when I have kept crocheting without a band-aid, I have literally cut my finger on the yarn. I don't know if this would happen with all types of fibers, but when the yarn actually cut my finger, it was acrylic yarn. Now, I don't let it get to that point :) And while it is not usually this bad, as in the photo, pretty much, no matter how much I crochet, there is always a shadow of yarn embedded in my finger. Aren't you glad I shared that little tidbit?

OUCH!! Have you thought about trying one of the leather quilters thimbles? I used to love wearing one when I did a lot of cross stitch - for my finger that "accepted" the needle as is poked thru the fabric. Can't wait to see the latest creation(s?) that result from the marathon!! I have been on a bit of crocheting binge myself. This third pregnancy has put me at limited activity which means sitting a lot which mean crochet time increase!! Have a great day! :)
