Suze:  Yay for lower counts!

What I have used when doing hand work (cause i just can't seem to get the hang of thimbles!), is moleskin. cheaper than the dots, I cut out little squares (you could cut out circles) and put it on the tip of my finger where the needle touches. The edges start to pull off after a while (maybe they wouldn't if you cut circles) but I just put on a new one when that happens. You might try that!

Thanks! I was thinking that moleskin might work...and it should be cheaper than the suede dots...

Thanks so much. I have heard the same from others as well. My attitude “ I can do anything for a year”. 1 month until surgery so, yep next may I should be good to go.

YES you can.  But with the new medicines and advancements in medicine know how, I doubt it will too bad. Best of luck to you. I'll try to remember to keep you in my prayers.

hum...I looked at these

those might work ...my doeskin glove tip is kind of like these, but its way softer...one of the reviews said they had to do 'finger crunches' for an hour to get it to be supple enough to use!! They might be the answer...but I don't know if wearing both at the same time would allow me to grip the needle..
