I haven't done any weaving yet. I finished my sister's project and liked it enough to think about doing one for me. It just might be too hot here to even think about it but anything that hides my hair can't be all bad. It took too long too, but that was my fault. I didn't have the sense to take a picture. That might be as close as I get.

I've thought about knitting some undies. I read in a book by Linda  Friend that she tried wool underwear and absolutely loved it. I've certainly got enough yarn. I could do cotton too. I have a really simple pattern. I'll keep you posted.

Almost Ready to Weave

I've been thinking about weaving again. I need a blanket and I have a ton of yarn. I could make strips of random patterns and sew them together. Looks aren't as important as keeping warm. I could put my homemade loom on the bed and weave - I think. I don't know how uncomfortable that would be, but I won't know until I try it.
My folding loom has warp on it and I really hate to waste warp. It's an ugly nylon string warp. I should just get rid of it, but can't bring myself to do it.

New Store

I just opened a new store called "Lil's Store" on Amazon. It's recommendations for you especially if you are looking for craft books and supplies. I'll be adding more over time. It's an easy way to collect favorite items without having to dig through all of Amazon's listings. Come take a look.
