I have a bad case of the Mondays today. Lefty was out of town this weekend, and the kid and I have had about enough of each other. Four (years old) is way better than three. But sometimes four is challenging. Now she is at preschool, and I am at home... trying to be creative.
The cut on my finger has made it difficult to knot. I am right-handed, and the cut is on my left index finger. It is healing well, but it is in the absolute perfect place to make tying a knot painful. If I use only my three other fingers and thumb, my wrist cramps after a while (#firstworldproblems, I know). Stitches come out tomorrow!
Not being able to knot and create macrame has been frustrating. My hands have been itching to do something. To make something. To scratch that making itch, I am attempting to make a hat or a cowl with a round loom. Years ago, I attempted to teach myself crochet and found it difficult. I may give it a try again using some superbulky yarn and my fingers.
I believe more than ever that macrame is what I am supposed to be doing. My next step is to form an LLC. Any macrame artists out there want to share any tips on starting a business, leave me a comment. What mistakes did you make? What lucky surprises did you encounter?
who am I?
modern punch is me, Becky, mom of a kid and a dingo, wife for 20 years. I grew up on the Florida coast watching rockets launch from my backyard. Now I live in the beautiful Finger Lakes amongst the wonderful weirdos and waterfalls.
All opinions are my own. I am not an expert. I am not paid for anything. I have only one rule: don't be an asshole.
