Stolen Moments

I finished up the gift Baby Blanket in Old Rose this morning.  I had not anticipated having weaving time this week since some of my kids are in town.  They however, have a list of people they need to see, so that means if everyone else is busy I get to go upstairs, turn on the audio book I am listening to, and weave away.

Here are the latest ones I have blogged about.  Once I get them serged I am going to measure and see what the difference in width is between the blue one and the others.  ( I didn't use the new Temples on the blue one).  Then once hemmed and washed I will compare again.  I will be sure to post the results.

I wasn't able to make it to the Christmas party, and Lou Ann was kind enough to bring me my gifts.  Here is the second scarf on my loom.  I had chosen the colored rayon from the stash at the center, and I paired it with black bamboo.  When I got the first one off of the loom, I was so afraid that it was going to be too stiff.  That maybe I had beaten too hard, since I was coming from an Overshot mentality!  Then however, I washed it gently in the sink.  Oh my, it was like butter!  I rethreaded and I am using a different treadling as well.  I hope to finish this scarf soon and get it off the loom so that I can put on some waffle weave spa towels.  I may not be using all the harnesses but at least I will have something to offer besides Overshot.

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

The blankets look beautiful. It will be interesting to hear how they did in size after washing. But, since the sun is shining, I know you're outside working on the barn!!!

Those are so beautiful! I love the way they look hanging together. My bamboo scarves were stiff and kind of scratchy, too, until I washed them. They are like buttah!
