In a Fog!

DH and I returned on Monday from our trip, and I am still in a fog!  Jet lag is really real!  I have decided to make no big decisions until my mind has caught up with my body!

So I am plodding along doing normal things, today I managed to run the vacuum cleaner both in the living areas of the house as well as up in the studio.  I managed to do a couple loads of laundry, and get the dishes done.  Again nothing that would require me to make any big decisions.   LOL!

Here are the socks I finished on or trip.  I actually finished them on the beach trip, as we were heading out of town.
With some fun detail on the toes.

Here is the shawl that is ready for the edging to be put on, but again  that will have to wait til I am all in one piece.

And here finally, I have the first sampling of the overshot throw I am working on.  After I did this first part I notices some threading errors and some sleying errors as well.  So I took the time to take this all out and fix it all. ( I am so glad I found audio books!)

Here we are after the corrections have been made and I have gone thru 2 pattern repeats.  I have noticed a couple of treadling errors in the tabby, and I wonder if I should go back and redo them or just go on with it, and this one will be mine.  I can tell that I will quickly develope a rythym with this design, and I can't wait to get back to it tomorrow.

It is good to be back,

Until next week, Happy Weaving, Tina

Welcome back! You should do an entry about your trip! The socks and shawl are beautiful, and the throw is very exciting.

I love, love, love the throw!!!! That looks so great, and will be fun to do in different colors. I agree with your decision to make NO decisions right now....jet lag takes a bit to get over.

Looks great! Overshot is all about developing the rhythm of the pattern and then going with it. The throw will be gorgeous once you're done!!

Maggie, I did a small entry on Farmstead Studio, but I am waiting til I get more pictures to do any more. You simply have to have pictures!

The shaw and the throw are beautiful. Can't wait to see them.

What's the design from for your throw, Tina? It's really attractive, looking like it's waving up the cloth diagonally.

Kathy, it is a very old design. It is called "Cat paws and Snail Trails" in the Davidson book. I am sure there are other names as well.

Kathy said...

Thanks! I've actually done a cat track pattern in bookmarks, but it didn't have the surrounding diagonal "waves." I bookmarked my Davison page for future reference!
