    Our hands are one of our most precious gifts - they can hold, hug, comfort. They can knit, unravel, give. They can make magic with two sticks and some string.

    They deserve our love and attention, and while I'm very, very guilty of not thanking my hands enough, or giving them more TLC, I am pledging now to do better! Starting with these stretches and massages for wrists and thumbs, one of the many wonderful short videos Andrea Lui, The Knitting PT, has published on her YouTube channel. (Thank you, Andrea, that we are allowed to feature it here!)

    The Knitting PT
    If you got the Winter Celebration Box, use the hand balm for the thumb massage - it's wonderful, trust me! It's entirely vegan and contains no palm oil. Hopery, the small company behind it, is located here in Germany, and donates 10% of their profits and 20ct per product to RedApes.org, an organization protecting orangutans in their native forests on Borneo and Sumatra.
