      Mark, I think that’s the bane of most angler’s existence and their relationship with knots. It really comes down to practicing; tying the knot at home, starting with some thick cord, and getting to know it well is the first step. From there you can figure out how to make the knot work best for you. Perhaps you may find that making one of the loops larger or using more tag will work best for you. Of course, there are a bunch of knots that you can learn and people claim some knots are easier to tie than others. I find the best way is to know the knot well and get very acquainted with it.

      I use and carry “reading glasses” from the dollar store, they work really well for magnifying while threading the hook.. They come in different strengths and they are inexpensive, $1. You might also consider using Japanese bait hooks where you tye in your own loop. You can size up the loop to make it easier to thread. Also, try using a light background when threading a hook or tying a knot. Can’t really help you with the stubby fingers but the advice given, practice, practice, practice will help. Good luck and take care.
