Crazy as a Loom

Sunday, September 21, 2014


Finally done with the first batch of baby blankets.  Fourteen of them, 34x48, 100% cotton, one already gone to my youngest daughter's friend, who is having her first baby.  One sold today just from my Facebook post.
The rest are going to the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival next weekend, at the Washington County Fairgrounds, in Greenwich, N.Y.

I think I will put another warp on the AVL this week,  for more of them.  They are so colorful, and so soft, I can't imagine they will stay around for long.

These have been a lot of fun to weave.   I washed them, and dried them in the dryer, and they came out looking just lovely.  That's a very satisfied feeling.

On the garden front, the girls are hard at work.
They are waiting every morning for me to let them out of their run, and into the garden.

I think, however, that Bart just supervises, and struts around looking handsome.

The birthday party was a big success.


 But doesn't she look like she's saying............."uh, the cupcake was great, but this hat............"

Those stacks of blankets are a beautiful sight! I should think you *would* feel very satisfied, and as you hint, energized as well. The chickens look great, too!

The blankets!!! Ohhhh- as I've scratched my head all weekend long on what to get for my friend's 9th baby… yes number 9! Will wait for email reply when you are able… :)

The hat- yes- clearly the hat- she is so cute :)

The blankets look lovely! What did you weave them with? 8/2 cotton. I have a couple on my Schacht Standard now for my newest grandchild and I am just hoping to offload enough commitments to weave them in November.

Which AVL loom? I have loom envy.

Welcome to my world.
