Tailfeather and I had a falling out earlier in the week, as ranted about in a post
, but I have picked it back up since. It is now impossible to photograph as it is so bunched up on the needles. I’m doing one of the front without putting the rest on waste yarn…we aren’t on friendly enough terms to do that yet. For next week’s post I will do it, so you can see the weird shape it becomes.
Just the tiniest bit of spinning.
The hand towel I finished last week works really well. I kept calling it a tea towel but it’s a hand towel specifically for the kitchen.
With half of the remaining warp, I made a single width towel using a single heddle and a pick up stick to make a bit of texture (photos of the front and back below). I will do another single width one with the remaining warp and then try again with double width with some different weight cotton. I wish I’d bought a wider loom originally. If you are thinking about having a go and getting a loom then definitely go bigger than 10″.
I seem to go to bed and wake up and another week has flown by. Our lockdown in Scotland will start being eased on Thursday but only baby steps. We watched the entire series of Little Fires Everywhere on Saturday. We clearly really enjoyed it, which surprised me as I’m not particularly keen on Kerry Washington’s style of acting, but the rest of the cast are really strong, especially all the children. I hadn’t read the book, if you have there are apparently some deviations. Other than that I did some gardening whilst listening to The Office Ladies Podcast and watched hours of Agatha Christie’s Marple whilst I knit, rip-out and re-knit Tailfeather.
Have a good week folks, no doubt I’ll blink after posting this and another week will have passed, it really is strange how fast the weeks are flying by.
