I´m beginning to like that bulky UFO thing,
which now is named Gamble...
... although I have difficulties working
on big and heavy pieces - there´s a constant
slight inflammation in my wrist joints (ah, yes,
the years are showing...), so I can´t hold
one hand underneath the cloth for a while without
increasing my troubles.
But this one is going to be finished...
Meanwhile it helped me forward by providing
a Word of the Year for 2010 - which will be
or, in long version: WAY/WEG (in German WEG can
mean both way and away...)
And so, considering these facts, I decided -
inspired, of course, by this and this - to prepare
part of a mothholed wool scarf by covering it with
a layer of soft linens to become the base of
a Long Cloth I´m going to make...
... an arthritis friendly solution, it´s shape
already being a WAY... I might as well use the
scarf´s rectangular pattern as a (hidden) grid...
"Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself,
you had bloody well better find some way that is going
to be interesting. And you don't do that by sitting
around wondering about yourself.”
