Here's a video: []

To work out the puckering that KT mentions, poke your needle into the picked-up stitch and the stitches around it. Even consider using a slightly larger needle. Then tug the fabric and the area will usually look pretty uniform. Some fibers are more forgiving than others. Wool and wool-like acrylics usually respond to this treatment. Cotton and some other fibers are more difficult to tweak.

I don't have ct, but my hands are arthritic. I always have several projects going at once - knitting on large needles, knitting on small needles, fine lace crochet, crochet projects using larger hooks, and so forth. Trading off seems to help.
