This is where I’ve been lately. Here, there, everywhere, but no where in particular for any length of time.
It’s hard having the loom in the cellar away from everyone because I would rather spend time with my family so I get a few inches done on the next scarf here and there:
I need to work a little harder on it though because I’m hoping to make the kit available soon. Of course, sewing is in the same place as the loom which is making that slow going too unless the kids need something. My main winter jacket is 12 years old and it shows. I have so many plans for a new winter jacket and it starts with this:
I have plans for weaving the cloth for another jacket but this one is a lovely boiled wool from a local woolen mill in Norway Maine. It’s a gorgeous charcoal grey fabric that’s been sitting in my closet for a couple of years. I finally cut it and will do a bit of sewing and reworking the pattern to include a lining so it will be a suitable winter jacket.
I’ve done a bit of knitting here and there as well. I finally finished the sample sweater for a class at The Knitting Experience. I need to steek the sleeves and I’ll be done so they can have a sample for the Fair Isle and steeking class.
Last but not least I finished some spinning. This was a couple of lovely batts that Josette from Enchanted Knoll sent me for my birthday. I’m making a pair of much needed mittens. The cable cuff pattern is lost in the yarn but I know it’s there and to me that’s what counts. I almost did a plain rib but I really wanted the cables and stopped caring if it showed or not. Sometimes it’s not about how it looks, but about how it makes you feel.
