In the past month I have had a virus on a lab computer followed by a complete hard drive failure,
It’s getting to where I’m afraid to use anything mechanical, including pencils.
In fiber related news, I had a fun new experience last night – I pulled the silk bell I picked up at MDSW into rovings. It was great fun, even if it did cut a slice in my index finger. The tutorial I read wasn’t kidding when it said the stuff could be hard on your hands. Silk is so deceptive! It feels like cobwebs, yet it’s tough enough to slice through skin. No wonder people have been fascinated with it for thousands of years. Tonight I hope to try to spin it, assuming I can keep my eyes off the Penguins game.
