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.

Shawl is woven and given


Here is a photo of the shawl I made for Mim. She brought back a sarong for me from India late last year. Mim just got back from Rwanda and (brain fart) where ever the wild critter roam.** Poor girl is freezing. She hasn't been in cooler weather for quite a while.
There was enough left on the warp to weave a 60" runner, a 36" dish towel and a smaller piece at the very end that could be a liner for a bread basket.
I'm very pleased.
I hope Mim catches up with her sleep soon. Poor girl. It took 24 hrs to get back home.

I love the result - the colors are wonderful together and it has such a nice drape. You're right about cotton!
