Sorry for the long break – life got a little crazy. Also, I was only working on one project so I could get it finished, and it took basically forever, so it didn’t feel like there was much progress to report. However, finally it is done!

I’ve got maybe 15 more rows until the thumb separation, then the hand and thumb. I was hoping to get this done by the end of July. Maybe that will happen?… Continue reading Wednesday WIPS
