I got my thumb stabilizer today (along with six bags of Hi-Chew fruit chews but that’s a different story). It works just like I want it to. It keeps me from bending my thumb backward. It feels good. The only part of my thumb that will move is the very tip. I haven’t crocheted with it on yet, but typing is ok. Well worth the $12 I think.
The box says it’s good for “Gamekeeper’s thumb”. Maybe I was a Scottish gamekeeper in a past life and it’s coming back to haunt me now. Or maybe I’ll tell people I have skier’s thumb and make myself sound like a jetsetter. But generally I just say I threw my thumb out crocheting.
