Well I noticed that I only seem to post the 10 on Tuesdays lately, which is better than when I wasn't posting at all. So I figured I would shake things up a bit and tell you all what's been going on around here. Two weeks ago I finished my first weaving project.
Started as this:
Ended as this (I love it, please forgive the sad I had no one to take pictures for me bathroom mirror photo): (and the fact that it is sideways.)
So last week I started a new warp for placemats for my mom's new house in Michigan. Can't show the warp not because it is a surprise, mom doesn't go to Facebook, Blogs, or Ravelry, but because I forgot to take its picture. Class is tonight so hopefully I will remember to snap a couple of photos. But I must say I am loving the weaving. So much so that I bought a loom. I was saving up to buy an 8 shaft Baby Wolf when online I found a used 4 shaft for a heck of a lot less. Normally when the used ones come up for sale they are in places like Denver, North Carolina or Upstate New York, but this one was being sold by a woman who lives 45 minutes from my dad and he has volunteered to go and pick it up for me. I took it all as signs from the Gods that this was meant to be.
So other than the weaving Mabel, the worlds greatest/most annoying dog, has a massive ear infection due to allergies so I have spent a ton of time cleaning and putting drops in her ears. Fortunately she is a good dog and doesn't fight me. And the vet said she was good enough to go to training friday night.
The boy child has hockey Monday and Wednesday nights, I have weaving on Wednesday, the girl child and I have ice skating on Thursdays and finally I have dog training on Fridays so live is very busy but fun.
I am still knitting but you can't tell what it is.
It is the Evenstar Mystery Shawl (Ravelry Link) and this is what 560 stitches looks like on a 16 inch size 3 circular needle. So I have no idea what it will look like spread out.
That is all for right now. Friday I might be able to post tales of Ice Skating providing I can walk.
