I hated to have Tuesday off and miss Tuesday Weaving, but I woke up yesterday with a wicked sore throat, and I know how I hate it when people come to work sick. "Hey, I feel like @#$%*! I'm going to breathe on you all day and put my hands all over this food! Ahhhhh-chooo!" Yeah, I hate that. So I kept my germs to myself, called off for today, too, and spent the two days being incredibly lazy and self-nurturing.
The sore throat never really got going, probably due to the Vitamin C I take daily and all the juice I drink, and the sniffles and runny eyes tried to get a toehold but never did. But what a lovely lounging time I had!
I also spent some time weaving on the painted warp. I finished the pink silk and started the third scarf, using the pink silk as tabby and a lavender cotton as pattern weft. I'm only using one strand of the cotton, because it's twice the thickness of the silk. It's not my favorite of the three, but it's still quite nice. It glimmers with the silk underneath the pattern, and the cotton lets the painted warp come through. Bead selection is already swirling in my brain as I weave, and the pattern is well-memorized, meaning it's going very fast. This is another warp I'll be sad to see go.
And I had to bake something, being away from work so long, so I made chocolate chip cookies. The jar was full yesterday afternoon. I think the cats are eating them.
Stay warm, and weave something toasty!
