This is the first time in about 25 years

that I've not been scrambling around getting things ready for Medieval Fair. Been kind of nice, really, not being under that time pressure. Until today.

Making a piece- a small piece- for a friend, not much hammering at all, and it went pretty well. Until now, a couple of hours later. Now even typing hurts. My hands are so screwed...

Good thing I told them last year 'no more'. I just flat couldn't do it again.

I've never been a blacksmith, but I was a boat builder for most of my adult life. I've had the carpal tunnel release on both hands, and I'll have to have it done again on my right one soon. My right hand hurts any time I'm awake so I can pretty much sympathize with you. I wish there was something I could actually do.
