I can't type much today, as I have shooting pains up and down my right shoulder, arm and wrist. Most of this I blame on trying to paint my entire new apartment myself in one day while being extremely short. Additionally, however, I find that crochet really hurts my wrist. Is this common? I attribute it to the extra twisting involoved; is there a trick to keeping your wrist straight but still getting back through the stitches? I've been experimenting, but haven't had great success as yet.

I find that crochet tends to bother my wrist, too. What I do is alternate between knit and crochet so I do not totally kill my wrist. How do you hold your crochet hook? I also alternate between a couple of different holds, which helps some. Good Luck!

Why are you painting all by yourself? Where's your husband?
I know Kristin said she stopped crocheting because it hurt her wrist too.
