REDS FOR WARP
I have made the dyeing decisions for the warp. Two reds. Both relatively dark/dulled but not devoid of brightness. I have worked out the formulas. I have made the solutions. Let the dyeing begin.
BLUES FOR WEFT
Also, in light of what has been happening with the sample crackle on the loom, I have modified some of the formulas for the blue wefts.
THE BODY (MINE) PROTESTS
I am, however, now slowed down by wrist/forearm tendinitis, thanks to overzealous mousing. And I am slowed down by a pulled biceps muscle partly due to too many years of carrying a heavy purse on that shoulder, partly by some overzealous stretching for the tendenitis.
I was recovering nicely.
By the end of yesterday, however, I learned that all the pouring I had to do in preparation for the dyeing badly affected my biceps. Carrying too-heavy trays into the garage to do some mixing of dye powders did not help.
Nor can I weave because picking up the shuttle at the shuttle race affects precisely the forearm tendon that the mouse has so nicely hurt.
Dyeing will progress...........slowly...........patiently............carefully.............
