Irony for fun and profit.

The sweater is complete, save for blocking. And maybe some tidying of ends. I am pleased with it and it looks pretty good on me. I have some leftover yarn - actually, a good bit of yarn - so I have cast on for some sort of hat to go with.

I have recently been cleaning my studio and today I have begun preparations for the Ugly Fabric Challenge for the local quilt group. I think I will go with something square and triangley; something traditional. My goal is to get back to Leslie and my art.

I want to spin more, too. I just ordered the Kromski Harp, 22" rigid heddle loom. I'm hoping to weave some scarves from handspun and I'm hoping that this loom won't aggravate my tendonitis. That is what put an end to my past weaving efforts.

Anyway. All is good. I am well. Thanksgiving was swell. Ding dong derry in the dell.

I've got a couple of rigid heddle looms. I should make a lot more use of them. I have a table runner right here in front of me, that should inspire me. I also have everything I need for the next project sitting in a box downstairs., and that's not motivating me either. Christmas break is coming. I will motivate then.
