To be a saint is the exception, but to be upright is the rule. err, falter, sin, but be upright.

I craft, and live in my spare time.

(It sucks that no one has replied to you yet!!!  I'm a knitter/spinner/weaver, so I'm usually on Raverly and just saw your message today.)  Sorry, but anything that uses your hands is going to hurt.  The best you can probably do is rotate what you're doing so that you use different muscles in different ways.  Also, get a great deal of rest between projects and try to minimize how much you need to use your hands to do non-fun stuff.  For example, I've got voice recognition software (Dragon) to reduce the amount of typing I have to do and use an ergonomic keyboard when I have to correct it. I also find that heat helps better than cold when I'm resting my wrists, but I've got OA; you'll need to experiment to find what works best for you.  There are groups on Raverly dedicated to knitters with Arthritis who would give you more tips, so you may want to check there as well.
