What am I up to now?
I've been knitting a great big, thick yarn cowl since this winter. Getting too warm to do any knitting on it right now.
Finishing up a jacket made with my handwoven fabric, blog posts to follow.
Working on two sewing projects - blog posts to come!
Ideas on fabric I would like to weave to make a skirt to go with the jacket.
UFOs which really need tending to!

I wove this many years ago. I know that the yarn was a 22/2 Cottolin (cotton/linen blend). But other than that, I have no idea what the weave structure is. I really like this and would like to make another. … Continue reading
I think I am going to rename this: My misfortunes with fiber! I was winding the warp for my next weaving project and the yarn just kept on tangling. I was winding on two strands at a time, both because … Continue reading
Well I finished all the square knots and wound the warp onto the back beam. I had a little problem getting all those knots through the reed, but a healthy tug was all it needed. One or two knots gave … Continue reading
