Not quite sure what happened to March! Oh, that's right, I was knitting. Here's my pitiful progress on the boundweave project I started in January. Boundweave does weave more slowly but I think I was more enthralled with the speedy progress of my Faroe Vine cardigan** and, of course, progress only comes when one actually sits at the loom and weaves!
I finally finished the first piece, enough for a small purse.
But the bright primary colors were just not doing anything for me. I didn't have any other 5/2 around but I made do by doubling some 10/2 for a few new colors. My daughter is a cross stitch junkie so I tagged along on a trip and found these.
But if I wanted a more unified piece I was going to have to order more yarn. I love The Mannings! When I finally got around to ordering it was after 5 on Wednesday, they shipped Thursday, and it was at my door on Friday.
I've colored in a few more designs and should find time at the loom this week. This is why I need a second floor loom. I've got ideas galore for baby blankets and June 6th will be here before I know it. Unfortunately that pesky pool table stands in my way!
**The Faroe Vine cardigan has been stalled for the last two weeks as I waited for spring break and a big chunk of time to cut the steek and add the front edgings. I was planning on tomorrow but 76° weather and a messy, neglected garden could tempt me to go outside.Posted by Charleen at April 1, 2007 07:17 PM
