Protecting your fingers? by Vladimeerkat 24 days ago

Send PM
Hi guys!

I?m finally back into tying bracelets after another long hiatus and I was running into an issue I?ve had before. When I pull the knots tight, the threads rub against the sides of certain fingers. After a while this REALLY begins to hurt and my skin feels raw for like 2 days afterward which makes it difficult to start any new projects (or finish old ones).

I was wondering, do any of you experience this? What do you do to minimize the pain?
Asking because I?ll be going on a trip Tuesday and will have some VERY long car rides ahead of me. I wanted to make my friend a bracelet to pass the time but it?ll be difficult if my fingers are too raw to make any progress lol

I use tape as well and in the evening I put moisturizing cream to repair the skin and not let it be more and more damaged as I continue my projects ;)
