...why I have trouble with my left hand, and how that affects my ability to tat split rings. So, here's the story...
Dec. 30, two years ago, I slipped on a patch of ice in my driveway. I broke my wrist in eleven places, and I had surgery on New Year's Eve. I have a t-shaped plate in my arm with eight screws holding it in place. Luckily, with great care from my doctor and several months of occupational therapy, I have the use of my left hand. I can't turn my left hand with the full range of motion that I have with my right, but I can tat, knit, and crochet as long as I don't overdo it. My left hand sometimes goes numb, and sometimes I just can't seem to get it warm. I can't always make my fingers work the way I want them to, and I don't have as much strength in my left hand.
Believe me, I'm not complaining! I am very grateful that I have the ability to do most of my favorite things with ease. I think maybe God was telling me I needed to slow down! So, I'll keep trying to do things like tat split rings, but if it doesn't happen, I'll be satisfied with seeing what all of my wonderful tatting friends are able to accomplish!
