|Making bracelets til the skin rubs off your index finger... by Andromadia |
|So I love using my hands and what better way than to create bracelets while staving off the need to constantl|
My question is this, does anyone else have this problem and if so how do you keep from rubbing your finger raw?

|My problem is when I tighten the knots, since I tie them fairly tight. If I always use the same finger (and the same part of that finger) to brace the string when I tighten, then the string will start cutting through the skin. |
Try gripping, or wrapping, the string different
Also, only tighten the string as much as you need to, and no further.
And finally, try not to rub a "moving" string against your finger (or against the other strings). When a string rubs against your finger you will get rope burn or against another string they will start fraying

|I found that using vinyl gloves or the finger covers works well when that happens.|
