The title is a ruse to get you into the blog. I haven't thrown a shuttle since the last time I was at the Center, July 24th! My looms at home are idle and collecting dust, even though they have some lovely projects on them, waiting to be woven.
I have been knitting every second I can sit down, though, and have been making great progress on a new shawl. It's square, knitted from the center out on circular needles. I showed its beginning earlier, the small square on four needles, and here it is, three weeks later on its third motif. Knitting lace is all about anticipating the pattern's next surprise, and I love it!
I've had weird days off lately, but have been taking advantage of them. For example, I rarely have Saturdays off, but had this past one, and went to the Farmers' Market on Market Square. Take a look at this stool a local woodworker made! It's perfect for weaving! I butt-tested it, hung my feet on the bottom rung and pronounced it perfect. Now, I just need to rustle up the $350!
I hope to get back to Tuesday weaving next week, and actually throw a shuttle. I'm really looking forward to finishing that first napkin, and catching up with everyone. Until then, for those who have time, Happy Weaving!
