Jumping Back In . . .

Rough day yesterday - food wise.  I didn't go to the store - in fact, never got out of my jams.  All the laundry got done (and put away!) though.  I'm glad I built in the recovery day - but I wish I would have used it more efficiently.  Somehow, I needed to pretty much just sit around.

I did finish weaving my very first scarf, however, and that makes me pretty happy  :-)  



I'm not quite sure what to do next - I mean, I think I'm supposed to wash and block this just like I would a knitted item . . . maybe it will help my selvedge (did I spell that correctly?!) on the right  :-D  The warp is Wollmeise 100% in Barista WD, and the weft is Wollmeise 100% Flaschenpost.  As far as the next weaving project - well I have two more sets of Wollmeise picked out for two more of these scarves.  Scarves seem to be a good thing for me to continue with to get more and more comfortable with my loom.  The warp is beamed for the second but not lashed on in front yet.  I'll be able to do that sometime this week - or next weekend, hopefully.

I'm not walking this morning.  No excuse - just made the choice to not walk . . .  I ate a lot of sugar yesterday - and I'm beginning to see the correlation there.  I never want to do much the next day.  I'm having a very strong cup of tea . . . since I'm usually pretty much caffeine-free, I'm sure I'll be pretty zippy this morning.

Still, kinda wishing I was here . . .


Or here . . .

But I'm home, thinking about the memories  :-)  And wondering how much work is waiting for me at the office . . .

First scarf?! No, no, no! I have a beautiful scarf that you made for me on a small loom! I think you meant the first scarf on your new loom, right? ;-)

You are correct! That was my first scarf on a continuous strand loom (and had some of my own handspun in it :-)

This one is my first on the Baby Wolf - and SO much better than trying to make mug rugs . . . !

Ah, yes, but if every day were vacation, vacation wouldn't seem nearly as wonderful, would it?

I like sugar entirely too much. I should send you an article I put in the hospital newsletter I produce. It scared me!

So pretty. I have the wollemeise I bought from you waiting to make a scarf. What reed did you use? How many ends? Are you happy with the drape it gave you?

The scarf is beautiful. Sometimes we just need a rest day. The problem I have is sometimes it becomes weeks of rest days.
