I was making dinner last night, cutting up onions and other veggies from our local co-op farmer for soup, when my thumb got in the way.
I hadn't done much weaving before this happened, and I can't do any on the big loom until I get the stitches out. The shuttles I'm using on the shawls are too heavy and I would have to reach into the shed (and catch the stitches).
I can't have idle hands. I don't like being bored and I can only do so much puzzle game playing and reading.
I got out my rigid heddle loom, warped it with some lumpy red and sparkly white acrylic/polyester yarn I had bought to make a scarf for a co-worker, and got to work.
Another thing I love about it is that I can weave from the comfy easy chair instead of a hard bench!
