Weaving, that is. I'm still not able to get any warp on the loom. My looms are so sad. Ok, I could finish that shawl on the rigid heddle but the call from it isn't as strong as the call from my floor looms.
I did get one baby blanket done. I don't know where the quilt top came from. I found it in my mother in law's stash of stuff. It is so cute!!! The little guys are in a fuzzy fabric. What little guy wouldn't love to drag this blanket around with one hand while sucking his thumb with the other?!!
I did have time to pull out my notes and I know exactly what to do. This is why it's so important to make notes of what you weave. I originally wove them well over 20 years ago. I'm replacing ones that are wearing out. The lodge is on top of Mr LeConte and there really isn't any climate control. They used to use kerosene heaters up there. However, now they heat with something that isn't so hard on the fabrics. I think it's a really good testament for the use of carpet warp for something that will get hard wear. They are brought down each November or so on the backs of llamas, whenever the season is over, to be washed in winter and then air lifted back up to the lodge in March, for another season of tired hikers to enjoy in their cabins.
Today is a yucky, rainy day here in East Tennessee. I"m just glad it's not a few degrees colder or we'd be sunk with ice. It's a perfect day to get some work done. I have just a few hours today so I may end up just sewing on another set of baby quilts I"m piecing. Wednesday is free for winding that first curtain warp. I'm looking forward to it!
Until next week, keep weaving!
