I knew she was talking about her yarn that was dyed yesterday....but I forgot that she had not seen two of the pieces since Lanny had done the dyeing for her. (She just blogged about this over at Sweet Threads.)
This is the bambu shawl warp that I will be rinsing out very shortly. I also dyed warp and weft for a soysilk scarf. This will be the first time I have woven with this.
Tina and I ran over to the Loom House on Tuesday while we were there picking up lunch, and cut off the three rugs that were finished. I threw them in the washer with just a wee bit of bleach. They aren't the most beautiful rugs....but they'll be great for the kitchen! Folks just want to watch you weave!
There were lots of folks who came to the Museum for the celebration: Abe and Mary Lincoln even came! The rain held off for the most part, and the anvil shoot was the most popular event of the day. At 2 o'clock, everyone gathered for the Ringing of The Bell. In fact, it was rung 13 times!!!!
I was able to get a short clip of the anvil shoot...what a fun event!
I'm going to go rinse out my warps......maybe it will be like Christmas here, too!
