IMG_3797   Here it is – my gorgeous blue splint which I am supposed to wear 24/7 for 6 weeks.  The goal is to correct the little finger on my right hand.  That finger insists on pointing down and I don’t have  the strength in my knuckle to straighten it.  Rather annoying but not painful.  By attaching the little finger to the ring finger and keeping it there for 6 weeks I hope the tendon in the knuckle will shift into the right place.   Now I have to figure out what I can and cannot do with this arrangement.  I’m pretty certain I won’t be able to knit, and typing is rather slow.
