Baby Surprise
It's Rhinebeck Sweater Time

Vacation weaving

I spent the last week at home, off work, being deliciously lazy with the kids. I felt a bit bad about not getting a lot accomplished but cut myself some slack; it's a holiday, and I don't need to be productive every. Minute. Of. The. Day. And yet, I did get something done. On a whim, I took out my neglected rigid heddle loom, pulled out some yarn and got it warped. A couple of days later, with minimal effort, I had a nice little scarf. Sparkle Handspun scarf

The warp: Dream in Colour Shiny (it has sparkles). The weft: handspun given to me by my pal Laura.

I tried a float pattern for the first time. I don't think I did the right thing on the edges though. But I bet you can't see it.

I think it's a bit bright for me, but Emma is already eyeing it.  Or I could say I was very productive this vacation and put it aside for a Christmas present.


Sounds like a nice vacation to me! I still want to learn to weave. I have to start using my spinning wheel again before I buy another piece of equipment. Your new scarf is very pretty and it is smart to store things away for Christmas.

What a beautiful scarf/shawl! Anyone would be proud to receive such a piece as a Christmas gift.

Sounds a very good post.The post is informative and interesting
