I want to knit, truly! But… my pinky hurts. Really bad… from knitting.
I hear some other knitters use their pinky’s to “hold” the yarn as it glides through the hand so as to help with tension. But for those who dont, it hurts… especially with little yarn. I don’t recall ever having had a problem with any worsted weight or larger yarns, but I haven’t used those much recently. So, now my pinky hurts from it’s little cramped position. Poor pinky.

I’ve tried knitting with it not bent and holding the yarn, but I find that difficult and it slows me down significantly. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m concetrating so hard on not using my pinky or if it really helps my knitting. I’m thinking of trying to splint it somehow so that I can’t bend it
