Hand Therapy for Knitters: Tips and Techniques for Hand Health

Colette Hand Massage image
We're excited to have Colette Smith stop by the Lion Brand Yarn booth (Booth #213, 5th floor) at Vogue Knitting Live NYC this weekend to demonstrate Hand Therapy for Knitters. Colette is a knitter, knitting instructor and fiber artist whose work you've likely seen at other fiber art shows. ColetteĀ knits beautiful, mythical dragons with yarn and other materials and her work will be on display in the gallery area of VK Live (5th floor). She'll also be present at the Lion Brand booth on Saturday and Sunday to demonstrate hand massage techniques to help alleviate hand and nerve pain.

After consulting with doctors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists, Colette discovered and perfected useful massages for her hands using a rubber bounce ball - the kind you find in toy dispensers at the supermarket!

We hope to see you at our booth on January 17th and 18th to receive a ball and learn the techniques for yourself!

  • Saturday, January 17th: 12:30-1:30pm
  • Sunday, January 18th: 10:30-11:30am

    Thanks for the tip. Everyone's hands need a massage after working a long time on a project even if they don't normally have hand pain.

    In the video she mentions a handbook - is this available anywhere online on the Lion Brand site (or otherwise)?

  • Zoe

    would you have them on paper instead of video so I can give them to my knitters and crocheters?
