I had plans this week to felt and dye, but instead I knitted and wove or is it weaved?! I am probably best not making weekly plans and just sticking with the annual plans.
The socks for my husband are progressing, slowly. I do love the yarn colours.
I think I’m at the point to do the sleeves on my jumper but need to put it on a longer needle to check. I am really not enjoying doing a bottom up jumper, top down seems so much quicker and more motivating…or perhaps that’s just me.
I spun 25g of Wensleydale as part of my breed project and also spun some baby camel and silk.
Last January when I only had a 10” loom I made some Diamond Stripe tea towels as part of a weave along by Kelly Casanova. She is doing another this January and sign up opens on the 12th January, but as I already had the pattern and access to the videos I have got a head start!
Warping my 32” loom with fine thread doubled took ages, then there was all the threading of both heddles. But now I’ve made a start on the weaving and I’m really happy with how it looks so far. The cotton is Venne 8/2 cotton. The pattern is on Kelly’s Etsy store and details of the weave along are on her website if you are interested. The pattern is for a rigid heddle loom. They look like more symmetrical diamonds once they are washed and on the reverse side.
I have managed to do some yoga each day and do something spinning and weaving related each day and I hope to keep that up.
It has been snowy and cold this week which has been lovely on dog walks. Our dog absolutely loves snow, licking it, face planting into it, eating snowballs, she has a spring in her step when there’s snow on the ground. She will be 14 in April but seems much younger when it’s snowy.
