    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Some good ideas there. The physio came to see Mum this week (first time she's been involved) and has recommended some exercises to help as well. It's worth trying anything to keep the hand functioning a bit longer x

    Hi Ann

    It might be worth you googling " The Kintting Aid" I have recently been given one as a present its a genius contraption and has really helped. I had had to stop knitting! It takes a lot of getting used to but worth persevering. Only thing though it's expensive! I was just lucky I have a lovely sister in law, I love knitting and had found it so difficult to face the thought of having to stop.
    If I can figure out how to post a picture I will put one on here.

    My left hand is weak but I use a piece of foam rubber tubing on the handle of a fork.

    There is a product called a knork which is useful for people with the use of one hand. See http://www.completecareshop.co.uk
    Don't forget to claim the vat refund if you are registered as disabled.

    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!
