Weaving: A New Beginning.


This woven red scarf has been a crafting break-through for me that was a long time in coming. I have had my rigid-heddle loom for a over a year but only this month has it been put to work.

I was fortunate to buy a 'Child's Table top' one for $38 dollars a fraction of the price of the Ashford Knitter's Loom I was planning to get. While not as 'sophisticated', Debby (my loom) is just as capable.

I have several connections to woodworkers, and so I plan to upgrade Debby as I go along. 

My second project was riddled with mistakes but it is no less loved.


              













It is just the start, I am looking forward to the journey!

I'm Sick..

Being sick is no fun. Being very, very ill is humbling and devastating to morale. I have gastroenteritis,  a horrible stomach bug that has me dehydrated and queasy.

What I miss most is my energy. I can't stand up for very long or even concentrate on conversations - far less a complicated cardigan pattern.

I can't wait to feel better. I want to eat and kit again, or heck just be able to walk for a bit without wobbling.
