I really wanted to use a red color on this one, but with my last disaster still fresh on my mind, and since I haven't had time to experiment fixing the yarn color yet, I am going with a dark Kahki-ish color which will work just fine.
I have finished the Scarf for the Tuesday Weavers Challenge, and also the Mug Rug and Mug gift item. I really enjoyed weaving the scarf, but I have to tell you it is really a different kind of weaving. I had to be very careful to just lay in the weft instead of pounding it in like I do with Overshot. I can't wait to post the pictures.
It has been quite cold here recently, and we are doing the things you do to keep warm. My long underware are rarely off my body, the fire is constantly going in the woodstove, (that includes some splitting and hauling of wood, which also warms you up) the space heater is going in the studio and soup is in the crock pot. Todays soup is vegetable beef. We get our beef from our neighbor and I must tell you that grass fed beef is wonderful!
Well I had better get back at it, I am just taking a break to get some more coffee, and do this post. I really would like to finish this one today, but really I think it will be Monday before it is done.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
