What a Difference.....
By the way, he was working on his THIRD inkle project Tuesday night!!! (I told my daughter that she needs to start thinking about moving furniture around to accommodate a floor loom!!! She was not amused!)
I have been so inspired by Maggie's turned overshot that I started playing with the miniature patterns I often use for mug rugs. The light bulb has finally come on, and I'm ready to wind a warp for my first project. I'll let you know how it goes!
My warp dyed scarf is going on Parker, the Wolf Pup. I'd like to have it woven before next Saturday. The Guild and the Tuesday Weavers will be getting together to do more warp dyeing! I also need to wind another scarf warp for that!!!
Cici tried and tried to help me connect the treadles on the Glimakra. I think she was afraid I'd never be able to get up off the floor. (That cat has such an attitude!) Here she is pointing out that I made a mistake when I connected the lamms to the shafts. Oh well......
I'm a little worried that the weather may interfere with our planned party on Tuesday! We got more snow last night, and they're calling for another round on Monday. When did East Tennessee become the Arctic Circle??? I keep filling up the bird feeders...I'm so glad I bought more birdseed at the store on Thursday. But, the anticipation over the scarf challenge and the mug rug/mug exchange is building!!!! And, I can't wait to hear what our challenge will be for this year!
OK....I'll get off the computer (this little racy red sweetie) and get back to my projects. But, which one???
Happy Winter Weaving!
