Afternoon Delight

Because I'm nursing an iffy hip, (iffy because I'm not sure if there is anything wrong with it at all,) I wove for only an hour. The shapes come out squat compared to the draft, but I decided I like it in this instance. This scarf, 100% merino both ways, is going to be soft and squishy and I already love it.

The 512 picks I wove yielded 34.5cm, which means about 2700 picks will give me 180cm. I'll have to modify that area of the draft when I get closer to 180cm. I don't have any leftover warp, except thrums from an ancient project, so I'm weaving carefully.

Dinner is salmon and veggie soup.

  2. Thanks, Connie. This is a good piece to get me back on the loom bench. I then played around on the giant green exercise ball for an hour in the evening, so my old body should be right, too. I hope.
