Placemat the First

N asked for placemats like ones E has. hemmed, washed, dried I wove one on my table loom, cut it off, hemmed it, washed it, dried it. It was the right size and it looked similar to what he requested. So I tied the warp back onto the front and started the other three, with […]

Yarn Barf

Today K pulled out some sock yarn so I could be support for her first experience starting a sock on double pointed needles (she didn’t need to worry,  smooth sailing!). Unfortunately, her hank of sock yarn had been tangled quite masterfully by a then-2.5 year old. N said he likes to untangle yarn (??!) so […]

Daybreakin’

Still working on daybreak, though I’m on the edge now. I worked 19 sets of stripes because I like 19 better than 20. I may just be able to finish it tomorrow while N is at the Redskins game… here’s hopin’!
