Meanwhile, after spending two full days last week warping the loom, I have one towel finished
And a second one in progress
And HOLY COW, do I ever need to work on getting a consistent beat. That’s the weaving version of a consistent tension, and it’s why you can see major differences in the fabric. In stripes. Oh well. These towels will still go out the door as gifts, and I’ll improve. They’ll dry dishes just fine even if they don’t look perfect.
When I ditched the Imperial shawl last night, I did what I should have done on Saturday when I started that. I cast on for a möbius.
I’m teaching the möbius cast-on Thursday night. The samples I had last time around went out the door as Christmas presents last December. It won’t be done in time for class, but hopefully it can give the students an idea of how this thing works.
And, on a final note, any ideas on how to make some chipmunks scram?
They make a gigantic mess on the front walk and I’m sick of them digging in this particular spot. And no, I haven’t tried a damn thing to make them go away.
