More….

I’m going to have to put the red & green on hold for a bit. The idea was an apron, but I found the ball band which informed me that this was a fine wool. Not a good choice for such a utility garment! So in looking for another, I discovered several. The Grey has had me stumped for a few years. I think I’ll go with the stack of triangles. Already partly assembled it should not take long to come up with a pretty cowel. This fat yarn is also very soft! Don’t know why the photo won’t enlarge but you get the idea. I wove these on the 7″ Quilt Weaver Triangle. Still working on the finishing. Keep your fingers xed for me! That’s when you are not weaving yourself, of course!

 

TA_DA!

I betcha didn’t think I’d do it! Took awhile and a few re-do’s but I got it done (barring buttons) and here it is! You’d think that anyone with two large cans of buttons would have the right ones! lol Well, I did but I need 8 and only have 7. That’s the pits. I’ll get better pictures with it on once I find buttons. But it fits well and I like it!

Next.. I think. Got a couple vague ideas for this. Can’t remember what I had in mind when I made them. There’s not much of that yarn left.

 

 

 

WIPs & a determination.

Yesterday I went through my stash and laid out all my WIPs. At least 4 Large projects & a few smaller ones, not abandoned, but halted for one reason or another. I’ve decided that as there is really a lot of time & yarn tied up in these that I need to either find a way to finish them or repurpose them into something else useful. Most were meant to be some bit of clothing, large projects. So I think today I’ll choose one to start with. I’ll have to make the bed first as that’s the only place other than the dining table ig enough to lay out these projects. As we actually eat all meals at the table it isn’t available all day. I guess I am just posting this as a kind of commitment to actually doing this. You are all holding me to it!

I think I’ll start with this one.  A vest. I can’t remember when I started it or why I quit. I’ll take a look at the details and make a decision today. Hang in there, I’ll try to keep it up.
