101 things to do with one hand

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

dam never thought about that, I guess the OH is relieved :lol: It is not completely healed, but every day there is a small improvement, and I can play the violin again, though I will have a funky Harry Potter type scar on the back of my hand

Oh dang, I thought this was a thread for new mothers with a baby sleeping on one arm.
I learnt to do plenty of things one-handed in my daughter's first ten months & I was curious about what else was possible (crochet is by the way).
Glad you can play again :)

You could still paint and draw.

I've seen people knitting with one hand. The knitting needle with the needle with everyting on was held kind of in the crook of the arm and against the body. The opposite had did all the moving. This was their prefered way of knitting despite the fact they had two good hands.
