My Mr. Greenjeans cardigan is almost finished! Just a few loose ends to weave in, because I weave as many as possible in while knitting, and then it needs to be blocked and a button.
My Astrological Shawl is off the loom, waiting to be finished, and I love it! I was supposed to wind a 4 yard warp, but have been winding most of my warps 4-1/2 yards long, and wound it that long as well. Luckily, I had purchased the small remainder of a cone of the black just earlier that day, because I ran out as I was winding the second border.
I've learned a few more things while making the shawl. First, I decided to tie the warp on, instead of knotting and lacing it on, because I wanted fringe. Well, I ended up starting over without ripping, and so wasted some of the warp (time is money too), but still ended up with the shawl and more than a yard and a half of yardage. (I'll have to remember to measure before and after finishing this time.)
One warp comes off the loom, another goes on. When a friend and I were in Bellingham, WA several weeks ago, we both purchased some balls of Jaggerspun Wool-Silk for scarves. I've been wanting to try a scarf similar to the ones that I saw over on The Weaving Studio, and chose apricot and black to try a small scarf. Depending on the light in the room, the apricot is looking more orange than I want, but in daylight it looks great, so I'm moving forward with the warping process.
Hopefully, I'll sit and finish threading the heddles and start weaving soon, although yesterday I picked up a package that needs my attention. It's for the secret project that I've mentioned here and there over the past year, and almost time for an announcement.
