Nada

I got nothing today. Really.

All the knitting on Pavillion is finished, but I desperately need to buckle down and end-weave so I can block, seam and do the neckline. End-weaving procrastination has prevented me from getting anything new on the needles.

Softball socks are done. Yarn is wound for their replacement on the needles, but that’s far as I’ve gotten.

The store sample BSJ is finished, minus the shoulder seams. Yarn for a new BSJ is also wound, but I haven’t cast on.

Yarn for my next sweater (vest with MadTosh) is ready for swatching, but I haven’t done that yet either.

Yesterday, I went down to the store and got Sandy to help me with a little crochet project. I blame Cristi for this. It’s 100% her fault.

That’s literally the only thing I have on the hooks or needles at the moment. So I shall distract you with shiny new (better) pictures of the loom. Keep in mind, I have no idea what I’m looking at, aside from the fact that the cherry wood is beautiful and I did figure out how to put it back together so it looks just like it did at Obi-Wan’s house (that’s how I’ll refer to the woman who sold me the loom and will, hopefully, help me figure out how to use the damn thing)

I live very near Fremont, Michigan. It is nice to know beautiful things are made here.

I really need to learn how to crochet. Those coaster look like fun.

It's beautiful and looks so large. It's just what you need, another fiber hobby!

How did I guess that you would choose Bruin colors for your coasters? ;-)

I'd like to make a set of them, too (I love Cristi's), but I don't think I have any appropriate yarn in the stash, unless I make them super big out of wool and felt them. Somehow I think cotton would be better.

OMGosh! The loom is gorgeous. I don't know anything about weaving, but it looks like it's going to be fun!
