Numb.

Fingers, that is.

I’ve been struggling all week with numbness in my hand/fingers from holding my cross-stitching pattern. I use my right hand to stitch while my left hand holds the fabric.  My elbow is bent at greater than 90 degrees, so I’m sure I am compressing my ulnar nerve.

First world problems, I know.

The time has come, I think, to purchase something that allows me the freedom not to use my left hand to hold the fabric for hours at a time.  After several days of research, I decided to purchase a lap stand. I’m not exactly sure how it’s going to work, but in theory it should allow me to rest my left hand since I won’t be using it to hold the fabric.

And the beast that has driven me to purchase this?
