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.

Down To The Wire

another pair of Fetching fingerless mittens on top of one of the scarves (queen's cord) I wove. Shows both sides. Clever?
My daily fuzzy photo. This is a chunky cable scarf half done. I hope I can finish it today so it can be washed and dried before Christmas day. Wager anyone>
Both scarves. Bob thinks they're terrific, which is interesting since he notices little . I'm somewhat pleased. I see some beating inconsistencies which infuriates me because I took care attempting to beat the same each throw.

There is a third scarf that will not become a scarf but small coin purses or (eye)glass cases. As easy as the treadling was, my right foot always wanted to dance to a different song than what was written. There are three places that I failed to catch my little foot breaking into a cha cha cha. Yeah, I could fix it but I'm not gonna!

Merry Christmas!

I finished weaving my mom's saddle blanket at 2 am Christmas morning - what a marathon of weaving.

As a novice weaver I'm definitely learning that the way you set up the treadles can really slow you down. I thought I was being slick when I realized treadles 1 through 4 could be shared with 5 through 8.

I should have just hooked up the extra four treadles so I could have tromped a little less clumsily.

"Wait didn't I just do 1, 2, 3, 4? Or was the 5, 6, 7, 8?" Talk about sleep deprived confusion!

Take care,
(Speaking of confusion, my Blogger ID is a tad painful. Sorry about that.)
