The one problem with weaving is that you can finish projects so quickly that you stack up finished objects to write about but never can seem to find the time to write about them. I sewed Nick’s Kalimba bag last weekend and finally got around to taking pictures. He loves it and it was a much greater success than the knit and the felt Kalimba Bag.
My cousin is getting married in a month, she’s a much younger cousin and when I asked my aunt what she may like as a wedding present, she apparently yelled from the kitchen a hat and scarf.
Okay, well not much of a “wedding” present as it does nothing for the groom, but I decided to oblige and have woven her a scarf, a very long scarf its at least 9 feet long, and am going to make a hat to match. The worst part is she wanted it out of completely synthetic yarn. yuck. But I went and bought some Simply Soft at Michael’s as it was on sale 2 for $5. And in one day I warped and wove a 9 foot scarf. Now I could have never knit a scarf that quickly! I will knit her a matching hat.
For the husband to be they have some camping gear on t heir gift registry so I guess he’ll get some camping gear. I thought about making matching scarves but that is too cutesy for my family.
There has been little knitting as I’ve been working most of the weekend and the evenings, but hopefully one of these evenings I’ll get to work on St. Brigid. The new yarn is working in nicely, I can’t tell a difference, but I’m not as picky as some. I’m about ready to divide for the arm holes, so who knows, maybe I’ll even finish it in time to wear it this season.
