Hello! The last couple months have been full of events, ranging from volunteering at the library and writing a blog for my school's science project, to taking my first college class!
Because of being out and about so much, I have not gotten much weaving done, as the big looms have remained firmly planted in the studio while I flit from one place to another. Due to this, I thought that I had not done many "crafty" things that were worth writing about, but it turns out that I have amassed quite a little collection. "Little" being the keyword.
Firstly, I have been working on these little cross-stitch necklaces:
These were extremely convenient "to-go" crafts because I could just throw them into my backpack on my way out of the door.
Another project I got to work on was a knit pair of fingerless gloves with cables!
I have been knitting for over ten years now, but I had never knit with cables before! It turns out that they are a lot less difficult to make than I had imagined, and this beautiful pattern from my mom convinced me that I should give them a try.
Finally, I did manage to get a few inches of weaving done on the sewing thread warp, and I started weaving the placemats!
I am hoping to finish the sewing thread warp by the end of this month, but I still have about twelve hours worth of weaving left on it. We shall see!
