A change is as good as a rest

I'm a librarian. Part of my job involves manual handling, and lots of it. This can be anything from hauling mailbags full of parcels of books to shelving to repairing the till. Today it involved moving dozens of very heavy boxes of pamphlets around a storage room, and ended with me wrenching the thumb on my left hand. It's not sprained or broken, just sore enough that I can't comfortably knit or spin or play video games or read. (I hold the book or Kindle in my left hand and manipulate it with my thumb.)

Fortunately, crochet doesn't require any effort on the part of that thumb. And I have been meaning to use up some more of my scraps by making squares...
