Amazing New Product For Knitters/Crocheters

For almost 20 years of blogging, I have never endorsed anything. Until I was introduced to this amazing new product. And for those of you wishing to help support the blog, this would be a great way of doing that.

Sorry For The Advertisement On QueerJoe – But This Amazing New Product Is Worth It

Or at least I think it is. And it’s very relevant to me and other knitters, so I’m breaking a long-standing rule of not advertising on this blog. And full disclosure…I have agreed with this company to promote their product, so I get something out of any sales.  All of the proceeds go to offsetting the cost of the blog or if they exceed the cost, will go toward defraying some of the losses from the past few Men’s Knitting Retreats because of COVID.

So, if you only come here for the knitting, please just skip down to “Current Knitting” and accept my apologies for spamming your knit-reading.

I’m not sure how other knitters and crocheters have dealt with various pains, arthritis, sore muscles, etc. But personally, I have just kind of accepted them. And hoped they never got so bad that I didn’t want to continue knitting and crocheting. Eventually, I expected to start taking various medications to lessen any pain, like Thaddeus does for his arthritis.

For years I have have had sore shoulders. And at 62 years of age, my hands will often get sore and stiff after knitting for a while.

So, I was open to trying Knitter’s Relief Balm when they approached me. I used the version with CBD.

Knitters Relief Balm with CBD

I thought it was my imagination, but my shoulder pain went away almost instantly. It HAD to be a placebo effect or something. This couldn’t possible be. I tried it on my hands, and they too seemed to feel a lot better.

Honestly, I didn’t trust my own experience the first time.

So, I looked up the ingredients. The ingredients are all natural. And it stated that arnica oil is known to stimulate white blood cells which helps to accelerate healing, while magnesium relaxes and soothes the nerves and muscles, and the essential oils stimulate circulation.

A little more research and I find that arnica oil is supposedly very effective for osteoarthritis pain.

After multiple applications where I got consistent results, I am convinced this stuff is pretty amazing.

I was away all last week, and I’m still trying to catch up on various tasks. So I have made little progress on my latest horizontal, garter-striped scarf.

I’m loving the colors of this scarf. And I have finished about 22 ridges. I have about 10 more ridges to go…or 4,390 stitches.

  1. Hi Joe. Arnica is very good for bruises as well (which you probably know!). Which self-striping yarn are you using on the scarf? It looks great!

    1. Thanks Phillip…yes! I did read a lot about Arnica oil before deciding to promote this and I’m amazed that I’ve never heard of it before. The magnesium in this and the combination of natural oils (camphor, spearmint, etc) have an amazing effect on sore shoulder muscles.

      The two striping yarns are

  2. Love the look of that scarf, can’t hardly wait to see it completed. Considering the balm, I fear repetitive use injuries could keep me from my serious knitting and sewing obsessions.

    1. Thanks…I’m loving how it’s turning out too and also can’t wait to see it completed…but for different reasons.

      My mom went through surgery for carpal tunnel and that kind of makes me nervous. Just hope it’s not hereditary.

  3. Thanks for the info on the Knitter’s Relief! (Am thinking this may also work as “Gardener’s Relief.”) Do you have a sense how long a tube will last? It seems pricey, but if “a little goes a long way” it may not be that much of an issue.

    1. Thanks Donna…I honestly think mostly I use this balm for non-knitting-related sore muscles. Driving, general anxiety and bad posture make for very tight neck, shoulder and upper back muscles. So I think “Gardener’s Relief Balm” would be a perfect description as well.

      The best sense I can get about how long this will last is it rolls on like deodorant sticks and I use about as much. It seems like the larger size (2 ounces) will last for a few months based on my usage. But I’m also finding I need to use it less and less. So it seems to be lessening the cause of my sore muscles while it helps the symptoms.

  4. My husband has been coping with post-surgical arm pain for a while now. On a friend’s recommendation, he just tried a CBD cream (a different one than the one you recommend) and got partial relief, but it had to be reapplied frequently to have any impact. I’m going to try this one, hoping it will work better.
