Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. As of Feb. 1st, we opened 1 West. Our total capacity at this time is 120 people. We also now have touchless lockers, where you may pick up materials. Outside of safety, our top priority is to provide access to all of our collections. We continue to offer virtual services. We also are paging materials and will continue to mail materials to faculty, staff, and students living off-campus. We encourage you to use our convenient distance services. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for more information.
Crochet and Knitting
While crocheting and knitting can be soothing, that same motion can cause repetitive motion injuries including tendonitis and carpel tunnel syndrome. Plus you can get blisters. Ouch!
What can you do for crocheting/knitting?
- Limit the amount of time you knit or crochet. Do other things. *gasp*
- TAKE BREAKS. Take a break every 30-45 minutes. Get up and move.
- Rest your eyes.
- Try different hooks. They do make ergonomic hooks/needs. Lightweight and fat are better. * Use circular needles for large projects.
- Try different yarn. Heavier yarn makes you work harder. Some can also irritate your skin.
- Switch hands.
- Stretch your hands.
