Last Day of 2009

Today, the last day of the year I decided I had better get "to it" and prepare the loom for my next project - shawls.

I am using rayon boucle from Strings N Things
Measuring the warp
Tying on

Almost done with dressing the loom
Ready to weave
Whew. That always takes longer than I remember. This time it took even longer because I haven't woven since last June and am out of practice


  1. And I helped! Well, I held the thread while she pulled it tight. Still, it's nice to be part of an extended process that yields such useful and beautiful bounty.

  2. And it will be finished in time for my birthday in February, right........ hello... tap, tap... is this thing on... hello

  3. Giggle, giggle. You are a riot Amy. I finished weaving that shawl yesterday. One of the reasons I like weaving is I can complete a project quickly. I warped up enough warp for 2 shawls. I won't actually finish this one until I woven the second one. Maybe I'll do that today.

  4. I love the variegated thickness of the yarn you are using.
