    Does the needle work help with maintaining and/or expanding your dexterity? I really think it, and the fact that I type a lot for work, have helped to keep my arthritis from stiffening up my joints as much as it might have otherwise.

    That, and every time I did it I felt that it strengthened my hands. I did the one you do with needles, not hooks.

    Knitting.

    I can knit, but I don't care to. I drive myself nuts by trying to keep the yarn too tight. My OCD coming through. It's less of an issue with crochet. And I've been crocheting since the sixth grade, so I can now do it without ever needing to look at it.
