I am sickening full of joy today. I am acutely aware how irritating this can be if you’re in a different place but I want to let all of my kind readers know that the changes brought about since completing the lightning process training are continuing. I’m scheduled for my first follow up phonecall with my trainer later today and I’m looking forward to catching up with her.
I’m just back from walking the dogs after making some bread and setting it aside to prove.
I’m planning to return to work next week and can’t wait to just get back to ‘normal’ and not feel disabled.
I had a lovely chat with a good friend yesterday and we were discussing what it feels like to be in a wheel chair.
I am fortunate as I’ve only experienced this on a few occasions (one being last week on my journey to London) but my friend described it succinctly in that you stop being a person but become like a package that’s being delivered; you lose some of your humanity.
I am indescribably grateful to be feeling well, just for today.
On the yarn front I’ve woven another length of fabric
Cutting the finished piece off the loom and unwinding it from the front beam is so exciting as unlike knitting, for example, you don’t get to see the results until it’s all done, only a small part and then just one side of it.
This fabric has a warp of 2/8 cotton in a rich purple, blues, dove grey and a little green; the colours pop out much more in real life. The weft is a charcoal cottolin (cotton and linen blend) and it is the first time I’ve worked with this. It didn’t feel as soft before wet finishing but is lovely now. I’m not sure what to do with it!
