Interim

I had hoped to updated you on my cashmere experiments. I wove City Lights, got started on Tim's, but thought I had lost the use of my left opposing thumb, so am taking a break. It started when I was stacking wood a month (?) ago; sore muscles didn't get better but wrist and elbow started to feel weak over the weeks. Finally, I could not lift anything with my left art and I recognized the symptoms of tendentious from 5 years ago. It's not all that bad, but the braces restricts the movement of the left hand, so I thought I'd give weaving and typing (and cooking) a rest. Just so you know I haven't been lazy, here are some picks...

A bit cross, too, because Tim's scarf is looking really good. 
3rd sample piece, trying to get about 16 PPI.
Forgot the knee beam. And, I forgot I could just lift it, loosen the tension, and push it under the apron cloth, so I undid/redid the lacing.  Sometimes my mind just doesn't do any work!!
Sourdough dough keeping me company in whichever room I heat up.
Much prefer the B side, if you can see it... 
 Too eager to get going on Tim's scarf.

  1. I love that you've found a unique way to keep your sourdough warm! I'll have to try that.
