Congratulations on completing the blanket in time!

The pain you were experiencing was 'tennis elbow' not corpual tunnel. Tennis elbow can hurt from your wrist all the way to the shoulder. It is quiet painful too.

One treatment for tennis elbow is to apply pressure to the tendons just beneath the elbow which is what you did by placing your elbows on the table. Now rest your arms from crocheting and as much twisting as you can manage for several days. When you go back to crocheting, take it easy and do short crocheting sessions with rest or different activities in between crocheting.

I find that holding a pillow on my lap serves the same purpose--and doesn't rub the skin off anything, jcoley!

Impressive feat! As a knitter I couldn't have pulled it off. My part time job is answering calls from people ordering from a TV shopping show. In between calls, I knit sitting at an L-shape desk set up. My right arm is usually supported on the desk and my left is supported by the arm of the chair and it is very comfortable. My issue is that I keep wearing holes in the elbow of the shirt that is on the desk all the time! I keep thinking I should take time from my other projects to make a protective sleeve but haven't made myself do it yet.

Good for you, I'm glad you got it done. I love C2C baby blankets. I always make one for a girl & one for a boy & put them up until I need them. When I use one I'll get some more yarn & make another blanket. It's there when I need it. No worries it's done. Reita
