Today I finished up another unique forearm pattern, this one made up of three triangular knots woven together. The first day of installing such designs is extremely difficult, because no matter how carefully we make the pattern there are always adjustments and much "freehand" drawing with a sterile skin scribe to make sure all the weaves flow nicely on the muscles. But the second day, when I tune up the lines and do all the wicker shading, is pure pleasure. Well, for the client it is a test of will power to sit still for hours while I do it, but for ME it is great, because I see the pattern finally come to life, to what I have been imagining it to be from the beginning.
