Posted:surely a fine opportunity to learn some 1 handed spinning!

biggrin

I know how you feel, I have a damaged tendon in my wrist - it doesn't look as if its ever going to heal! frown


My state of mind is not yours to define!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Posted:seriously try doing it with just your other fingers. As long as the strings don't hit your broken ones!

I can spin, it just stings when I wash up!

Posted:Argh!! of all the fingers you have, it had to be those two?! gutting.

Pink> there might be a problem with the foot poi, see: broken toes too

Maybe you could do one poi with your hand and the other with your foot? unless the broken bits are on the same side of your body, in which case that might not work at all... how did you even manage to do that, there's so many bones in between and they're alright??

Posted:Can people actually do 'foot poi'?
I tried but it made my whole leg ache, and I couldn't do anything but swing it in circles.
So, can any one actually do anything good like that?

Posted:I've seen a guy do a 3 beat weave with his feet. Most impressive.

He did smack himself in the nads though. That wasn't so impressive. Just slightly funny.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
