I have a few inches to go on the current kumihimo rope so I quickly added the clasp on this one to avoid an ever-lengthening queue of necklaces waiting for clasps. I need some motivation, any motivation sometimes.
Funny how that works. Just having a preference does not in fact alter reality. Would that it were not so.
I like the way it turned out anyway but I still wish it read more purple.
Two years ago I'd have looked at me funny if I said this, but the truth is that any time I do anything with my hands that feels as though I'm applying any kind of force, I worry about damaging my thumbs more. And during the day if my hands are achey, I worry that even if I rest them, I'll get no relief and I'll never ever be able to do the things I enjoy, and that over time, not only will I have to completely exclude what I love, but the pool of things I kinda like will keep growing ever smaller.
And it may well be so eventually, but not yet.
It's not much but it's marginally better than nothing.
With a bit of luck I might have a new pair of gloves to wear before spring obviates the need for them.
