Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Ikat done

It's really navy but the flash washed out some of the color. The entire piece will be navy and will probably be dish towels. I won't be getting this on the loom for quite a while, but it'll be ready when I am.
I'm just getting ready to begin the fourth and final panel for the navy and white check blanket. Then I get to stitch to panels together...lets hope it's an uneventful event. Are you feeling a navy theme here?
We use the pond as a natural fence line for the pigs. Or did. Yesterday I watched them march their chunky bodies across the pond for a look around. They enjoyed themselves and came home at feeding time. Pigs-capades. The weather has been too cold for slaughter.
The house kids are out in the barn now, thankfully. It is a pain to have to go out and feed them their bottles, but at least the floor is dry now and I can spin without fear of one or all of them eating the roving.

Pigs, walking on water, fun! Nice ikat warps too, I just may be inspired.

Glad you can spin now. Dry floors?!? Have no kids inside, but cannot seem to manage that just yet.

Love stopping by to check on you....
