I'm seeing a chiropractor, an osteopath and an acupuncturist to try and get on top of it all with mixed success. The chiro has helped with my neck, but I'm going to need more than 2 visits, today was the 3rd, but I won't see how that's helped till tomorrow going by past experience.
Both she and my osteopath believe the side issues are related to my ribs/intercostal area, so there's been some work on that. She's hoping to get my neck more balanced as she thinks the strangulation effect is actually from my neck muscles at the front being very tight so I'm also doing stretches on that.
I was going to change GP, but have had to put that off after a phone call to say I need referral to get more investigation after an "atypical" test result. Not going to go into that further since we don't yet know why it's atypical, or what type of atypical, so I just need to try not to think about it till I get more information. I hate waiting! Once that's moved on then I'll change to a new practice.
On the loom front I've started working on Maire. The wood has been cleaned and then polished with a beeswax polish and I'm starting to remove rust from the jacks. Once that's done it'll get a wipe down with meths and then some silicon spray to protect it for the future.
Spinning has been mostly working on my Tour de Fleece combo spin, I've not yet managed a decent daylight photo due to heaps of rain here, but this is reasonably close to how it looks in real life.
|A mix of merino, ramboillet, alpaca/silk and unknowns|
|still got quite a bit of this to go, both spinning and plying|
|and the yarn is Schoppel-Wolle Admiral in Burgund.|
|Loving these colours together, the photo does not do them justice, the brownish colour is actually a rich burnished copper and is called Gingerbread Man. It'll be glorious when finished.|
Oh, and I finished the second pair of Portlander pants which I'm enjoying wearing, lovely and warm since they're merino.
