The results are worth the pain.

My nephew and his wife are expecting the first baby in the next generation of our family. I found out in September, was sworn to secrecy until they announced it 2 months later. It was a good thing I started crocheting an afghan for the baby in September. It took me until 2 weeks ago to finish it, something I would be able to have once completed in 2 weeks. The aching fingers, hands, wrists,elbow and shoulders were all worth it when I saw the smile on my niece's face as she unwrapped it. It truly was a labor of love. I guess I will rest my joints a bit, then maybe start one for my as yet unconcieved grandchild. It may take more than 6 months!

  1. Great site. These personal experiences are some of the most important contributions the advancement of RA.

    I'm working on a project to help people living with RA get better access to non-corporate sources of information. My hope is to help add a "research" layer on top of the great content out there and drive more people to great RA sites like yours.

    I'd love to send you more info, but I don't see an email address on your site. I've signed up 13 of the 22 Healthline Best RA sites of 2012 so far and would love to have you as part of this project.

    You can reach me at and I'll send you some more details.
