I apologize for the continued absence. It will, unfortunately, have to continue until an as yet unknown time. There is to be no knitting, little typing, and much cursing in my near future, as I have been diagnosed with de Quervain's tenosynovitis, a form of tendonitis in my dominant thumb. It is probably from a combination of work (chemistry = pipetting) and hobbies (knitting, etc.) and is causing much disturbance in daily life.
The promised photos will arrive as soon as I get the opportunity.
For now, I'll be back ASAP.
Please wait for me!
