Yes, it’s been raining for three days.
I finished this wool warp, and the last cloak from it.
Then Lois and I put another warp on the AVL.
And other than a 3 mile walk yesterday between rain showers, I spent all day threading and sleying.
I don’t mind it, but it’s time consuming. Someone asked me how long to make a cloak......the answer is hours. If I get three cloaks off this warp, I have to add a third of the time it took to set up the loom to each one.
The only way to decrease that amount of time for each one is to put mega yards on the loom.
The downside of that is that you are stuck with the same color, and the same threading, unless you are crazy enough to rethread, which would defeat the purpose.
October has been disappointing. Wet. Cold. Rainy. It’s always been my favorite month, and while I usually love the rain....... not in my fave month please.
Today, raining again, I will be weaving. If there’s a break, we will walk.
There was a short piece at the end of my last warp, so I made this,
Kind of tempted to keep it.
Had this recipe for awhile, finally got around to making it.
Carrot, quinoa bread.
Interesting, healthy, BORING.
Probably won’t make it again, although DH loves it, he can eat it all.
Two and a half weeks to the Hudson Mohawk Weavers Guild Show, L and I are working to finish a few more items. Then there’s marking, tagging, inventory.
By Thanksgiving, it will be history, and we can start over for next year’s shows.
I keep thinking we are getting too old for this, but then what else would we do?
