I am so pleased with what I have accomplished in the last few days!!
It is not always so, - sometimes I feel my age and aching bones and spend an afternoon napping and reading. (I should say reading and napping, - that is the sequence!)
But both my floor looms were warped and Sunday I finished a lovely blue, soft, Jagger scarf, - cut it off the Glimakra and after snipping the ends and fixing the errors doused it in the magic of water where all the sweet bits of wool reached out to cling to each other and came out looking like this....
Another Christmas present to keep a loved one cosy....
The wee bit of warp that was left
looks like this......
A nice little cover for a small tabletop
and fun to try a new pattern.
Flushed with success, yesterday I spent the afternoon finishing weaving
a Collapsable Scarf,
and in the evening I dipped it in the magical water
(hot-ish, and with a bit of soap)
After fifteen minutes agitation
the plain, loosely woven warp, striped with deep blue Jagger wool
and pale blue silk.
morphed into this delightful ruffled scarf!
Oh wow! Magical indeed....
Today I plan to replant bulbs in the wonderful rich compost
our youngest son retrieved for me,
out of the compost bin I so religiously tend.....
Life is good!!!!
Tomorrow I will wind warp...
