I’m seriously in love with weaving. You can finish projects so quick! Of course right now I’m basically weaving scarves. But still. Yesterday I wove 2 scarves at once parallel to each other. It was a lot of fun, slowed the weaving down a tad, but not to much. They are for my sister and brother-in-law,
I still haven’t started their anniversary tablecloth, and really, maybe this is more practical. they are matchy but not identical. Which is kinda cool. I used Paton’s Classic wool, a solid color for the warp and a varigated color for the weft which ended up with nice stripes.
Today all activities are cancelled do to snow, in St. Louis, if you have an inch of snow evrything is cancelled, we had maybe a half an inch, but they decided it was close enough to an inch. The world is cancelled. So today I’m going to weave the matching or maybe complimentary groom’s scarf.
I’m still knitting the bride’s matching hat. Its not going so well, I’ve ripped it out. But I still have 4 weeks. Although I’d also like to finish this hat I found while purusing hat patterns for the bride on ravelry of a hat with horses on it. My aunt is a horse fanatic.
Between working a lot of overtime and trying to get the bride’s hat done, I have only accomplished a few rows on St. Brigid. But you know I think its almost an unconscious fear of St. Brigid. The last several sweaters I’ve done have not fit at all. Probably due to my lack of patience in checing gauge , etc. Its completely my fault, but its making me scared of knitting sweaters.
After I finish the marathon weaving of presents for my family (to give to my aunts, etc. at the wedding – I rarely see my family and would like to do something for everyone – although I may be setting myself up for failure) I’m going to weave myself a shawl to wear as a coat. I figure it’ll take 3 weekends to weave. Maybe, mabye a bit faster, I’m not sure. I guess I will see.
