Unwoven

I was going to take a floor loom weaving class at the Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati today, but it was cancelled since they didn’t get three students. I wanted to begin learning to use the floor loom I bought used and refurbished last year.  Hopefully the one scheduled for October gets enough people.  Today’s class was just an introduction, and would have been nice, but next month is an actual beginning weaving for a floor loom so I can do without the once

Who-Dey!

Bengal Hat
Bengal Hat on Reluctant Model

I knit up a quick hat from some great orange and black yarn I got at Silk Road Textiles. ( It’s a great new yarn and fabric store in town, and I will be teaching there beginning September 22)’.  The yarn is Plymouth Encore and it’s a simple 2 x 2 ribbed hat that knit up really quickly.  The hat is for Zach, my 4 year old nephew who currently lives in Broncos country, but wears his orange and black proudly.  The hat is reluctantly modeled by my 10 year old son who is larger than a 4 year old .  But the hat is very stretchy and will fit a large range of head sizes so it should fit Zach fine and he should be able to wear it for years to come.  Now I have to finish the hat for Quinn, his baby brother.

New Beginnings

This is going to be my new place to document my fiber crafts, cooking and life in general.  I may try to import some of my old blog if I can locate the backup files on my computer.christmas Tree Hat

One of my last creations of the year, a hat for my new nephew George, another new beginning. The red socks were knit by my friend Susan.  Upon seeing the nearly completed hat, she promptly finished the socks and generously gave them to me to give to George with the hat.
