Re: Are There Proper Tatting Ergonomics?
Like Squeeky I tend to tat very tightly. Recently I finished a doily project that I started quite a while ago. I was shocked at how different my tension was then and now. I had to really back off on how tightly I tatted so that it didn't look different when finished. I found that by easing up on how tight I was tatting my hands didn't tire near as fast and the rings closed much easier. I also have one of those squishy balls for hand excercising that I use to to give my hands a break from the tatting and as Lynn says a good hand massage helps wonders too.
