Anyhow.....the rug is a sock rug made from Solmate Socks, and it is 7' wide, and it is being woven by TWO of us, on a Toika countermarche loom. It will be 10 ft long, plus a little. It is ONE of TWO.
One of my commenters sent me this, and it has been on my mind all day long. Wow.
Darkness deserves gratitude. It is the alleluia point at which we learn to understand that all growth does not take place in the sunlight.
It is perfect for me TODAY. Right now, at this point in my life. Maybe my alleluia point will take place in the Operating Room. Or waking up with all limbs moving on command. Or finally finding myself drugged up, but safely on my way home up the Interstate.
Maybe it will be a gradual alleluia, with gratitude just piling up along the way.
Today, L and I did the first half of the second rug. Tomorrow we will finish it, and the TWO 7'x10' sock rugs will be on their way via UPS.
Good thing we had help.
And it will be a great relief to me, that we managed to get them done, in spite of present circumstances.
Then I can get back to my towels. :)
My not so secret little addiction.
This afternoon, I played with this.......which I made for Ava from a pair of old jeans. I have a feeling that both my grandgirls are going to want more like this.
I have a few ideas.
Can ya' believe it??
