rx: beurre de karité

Even though we’ve had a mild winter, my hands are still dry from the weather. They take a beating from all the knitting, walking my dog without mittens and the occasional office paper cut. More now than ever I’ve been putting on lots of crème before I knit. I used to wash my hands well before knitting and then just dive into the project. Dry hands and wool don’t go well together. So now I use shea butter for the cracks on my fingers and if I have any cuts I do a quick soak in a bowl with epsom salts.
