Hand exercises for knitters

You’re sitting, needles and yarn in hand, watching your favorite series, and your hand starts to cramp. You ignore it at first, but it doesn’t go away. Then your fingers start to tingle and you sigh, putting your knitting down for just a minute before picking it back up again. You aren’t ready to stop knitting for the night, but it looks like that’s the only option.

As knitters, we have to take care of ourselves and take a break every once in a while (we’ve all caught ourselves saying “just one more row!” too many times). With our hand exercises for knitters, you can take little breaks in between stitching to stretch out your hands and fingers to keep from getting aches and pains. These exercises are short and easy, you’ll be able to complete them before the commercial break even ends!
