What I was doing today

We have had so much rain in the last two days. I heard on the news that my area received five plus inches and the rain isn't done yet! Living on a hill is a good thing.

Today I finished weaving a scarf I started last week. I miscalculated how much I would need for the weft and had to order another skein from R&M Yarns. Phyllis mailed it out and it arrived in two days. Per my usual photographic skills the colors aren't quite true. This is eyelash yarn. The colors are dark brown, tan and green.
I don't think it is very pretty but who knows. Maybe there is someone out there who will love it! To me it looks like camouflage colors. You might think that too if you could see it in person.

I also started a rug on the Studio loom. I am using some chenile selvedges I bought at Great Northern Weaving when I was there a few months ago. I really like the colors! They are burgundy, green and tan. I like how this is turning out.

Also today I put the finishing touching on three hats and twisted and tied fringes on the scarf and washed it. I didn't accomplish as much as I usually do but at least I accomplished something!



  1. This weekend was a good time to stay inside and weave. I can't believe how much rain we've had!!! I love those selvedge rugs!!!

  2. We missed you today at the center. I love that selvedge rug! I have never done one. I hope you bring it in once it is off the loom.

  3. Still a busy day and a lot done. Love that rug. I like the scarf. Somebody will love it.
