There’s been a flurry of activity in our household. The biggest thing is NEW CARPET and VINYL. For everyone who’s gone through new flooring, you know the hardest part is picking out colors and textures using a tiny sample. Then it’s moving furniture and appliances to take the old stuff out and put new stuff in and living with the chaos for 4 days. But it’s done and I like it!
I was able to put some serious time weaving on the Navajo rug. I’ve got the last color in and I’m at the half way point like I had planned. Go figure!
The next thing was to make mittens for a hat I had knitted last year. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the hat and didn’t want to waste yarn and time making mittens for it. But the hat works for me, I made a buttonhole in the back to pull my ponytail through and now my hands will be warm!
Pat and I are going to a “Western Home Concert” and I made a tote bag to donate for a door prize. I made the straps on my inkle loom and the fabric was from a bandana. The body of the bag is made of Pet Screen.
When we did the “K” photo challenge and I took pictures of my Kumihimo braids, it was a surprise for Benita and her partner so I had to wait until they received them to post the pictures. I could have used this one in the “P” photo challenge last week as the Purple Project bag. This one is for Sandy.
I’m still spinning yarn for my vest. I’m using Alpaca fleece and carding three colors for part of the design. I’ll use solid colors for most of the vest with the blended yarn in the sleeves and center back.
