My first project of 2012 is finished. This shawl is hot off my loom. Made from Universal Yarns Classic Shades in the colorway Reef. It is 70% acrylic and 30% wool. I love this yarn and have made many projects from it is the past.
Here is a up close and personal shot of the shawl. I love the way weaving is so much different than knitting and crochet. I am still so fascinated that just manipulating yarn in some fashion creates a fabric. Whether you knit, crochet, weave or felt making a fabric is so amazing. This will soon be shipped to my sister for her soon to open etsy shop. I have one more shawl on my loom to complete before I ship everything out.
My blogging time has been extremely limited. My youngest who has been home schooled this past semester is on the computer all morning and I work in the afternoon. My MIL is also visiting so my time at the computer is even more scarce. She is 93 and worth every second I can spend with her, so I promise that I will try to pop by and visit all of you this weekend when I get the chance.
I think it is time to start thinking about investing in a lap top, but I hesitate as I would much rather spend money on yarn.
Hope you are all well and enjoying the New Year so far. We started ours off with a new water heater....hmmmm not the way I wanted my first purchase of the New Year to go. But you forget how much you use hot water until yours is limited.
