I love your show!!!  Thank you all so much.   Have no complaints, but I do have a suggestion or question.  Could you do something on your show or dedicate a show to dealing with Carpo Tunnel syndrome - or how to prevent pain to people who have knitted or crocheted too long??? or how you do it for hours upon hours and not get pain??  or have you already done this and I need the referral?

Thanks again!!!
