I am embarrassed to say that there have been TWO bales of selvedge out there, weighing 200 lbs each, for 5 or 6 years. OK, maybe 7.
Anway, they were stacked high with boxes and other things, so it was easy to forget them.
But honestly, knowing they were there was pretty annoying.
Taking care of them has been on our list of things to do, and yesterday we tackled it.
They come out of a compactor, and as soon as you cut the wires holding them together, the bale literally grows before your eyes.
We sorted and bagged one bale before lunch. Then we did the second one after lunch.
What a job.
For those of you who aren't familiar, this the material I use to make the Adirondack Lodge Rugs.
So today, we cleaned the porch. We had moved everything to get the bales out. And it was a huge mess.
There has not been this much floor visible in a long time.
It's a good feeling to get jobs like this done. But I think I can speak for L when I say, we're beat.
We're still cleaning, and organizing, and moving stuff around.
I feel like I am rewriting the story. Like I've been unavailable for a long time.
I guess in a lot of ways, I have been.
It's raining now. Thundering. Warnings of tornado just south of here.
Now before I go back to my knitting......I just wanted to show you this. It is a silk, knitted necklace that I saw at Yarns for Your Soul the other day.
It is lovely. It comes in a kit, but my budget said "not happening".
Do you see how it is knitted the full length that would go on the back of your neck???
I want to make it. Bad.
