Suggestions for ways to play cards across distances?

I have googled and installed like a fiend but have yet to find a solution for the problem of playing card games with someone remote. I've tried a number of the "cards with friends" apps but they've been either poorly designed or a pain in the ass to use. Any suggestions? App options need to work on iOS / Mac.

Best protein fiber yarn for luxuriously soft dream blanket?

I plan to hand weave a luxuriously soft bed blanket for myself. I am a handspinner so will be able to spin blends if required. Which protein fiber should I use? Qiviut/Vicuna is too expensive but I do have cashmere/silk/yak/baby camel/alpaca etc. in my stash. It does not need to be really warm (I live in a warm climate) but I will like it to be as soft and luxurious as sleeping under a cloud.

What are some good pain relieving tools for knitters?

One of my housemates is an active knitter and sometimes complains of aching hands. She's past retirement age and has a little onset of arthritis. I've found some fingerless lycra support gloves that claim to help with that sort of thing. Do any of our knitters have experience with these things, and if they do help, is there a good brand I should look at?
