On Your Mark....Get Set.....

  This was not at the Olympics....or, at least I didn't see a steeplechase race.  I did see the equestrian event where the horses were jumping a variety of hazards on the was something fun to watch.  The riders went one at a time.

  Then, later that same day I saw this!!!!

Kinda reminds me of when I was a kid, and we'd make courses around our yard and pretend we were riding horses.  Only, we didn't have a water hazard.
  I've been thinking about that a lot..........

  On Tuesday, I was getting the calendar ready to show the weavers:  only 7 more weeks to Homecoming!  And, sitting right there was Marie's rigid heddle with her newest scarf she had brought to show.
And the light bulb came on!!!!
  We could have our own steeplechase....race to the annex....grab some yarn....weave a scarf!!!!  It's the Use It Up Steeplechase, Tuesday Weaver style!!!!
 On the left are my yarn choices (after I warped my loom.)  There's probably enough left to warp another scarf!!!!


  Here's the scarf on the loom.  I've got to build up some speed....Tina has already started on her SECOND scarf!!!  (I hope she blogs about her scarves tomorrow!!!)  But, today was a good day for weaving...we had a nice, steady rain this morning.
  I'm so glad I hadn't warped that other scarf from last week....I'll get that one on next. One of my yarns is a little sticky, so I have to make sure I have a clear shed....I can see one mistake in this scarf already!

  Sometimes we all need a little push.......

Happy Weaving!
