Spotty at best

So I forgot I had a blog on this site.  Oh memory of mine you play such tricks on me.

The shawl wove on my triangle loom is finished.

Tuesday, September 25, 2007


I haven't posted on here in ages, ah the fun of being a narco.

Well the house is coming along thanks to my new livingroom window;
and holding Dh's birthday party. The livingroom is almost tidy. I have to clean off my computer desk again and sort through all the junk I tossed on it from the rest of the room.
My god I'm a pack rat.

I also have built my triangular loom and have almost completed my first piece. A shawl for myself. I just have to finish tightening the bottom up.Here's some close ups:

Gorgeous isn't it. I have learned one very important thing about weaving on this loom. Don't use flat yarn if you are obsessive like I am. The main reason it's taking so long is because I'm actually going through it and untwisting any little flaw. Next time I'm using plain old plied yarn, in fact I have the yarn and my next one is a gift for someone.

Well I'm going back to it now.
