Busy Bee

It’s been a busy week. Bryony has a nasty cold and pink eye, Aneira has a stomach issue, and the PIP is complaining of the same. I’m afraid to get near any of them, because whatever they have, I don’t want it! I also had the dubious honor of someone getting hold of my debit […]

Could Be Worse

The DMC satin floss experiment has its ups and downs. The thread itself is an “up”: it’s holding up to weaving as well as its regular counterpart so far, which is what I’d hoped for. The slipperiness of it makes it only a little harder to work with than regular cotton floss. Tying on, I discovered, is […]

Let the Studying Begin!

Squeeeeeeee! Some of my tablet weaving books and tablets arrived today, and I hadn’t expected some of them quite this quickly! The two books with the colorful covers are from Claudia Wollny, the other two on the right are from Linda Hendrickson, the laser cut tablets are from Wulfenbahr, and the blue bird’s eye maple […]


I’m making my first attempt at one of the tablet weaving patterns in John Mullarkey’s  kivrim booklet, and so far, so good! I’d bought two of his books and two DVDs on tablet weaving. I’ve watched all of one, and part of the second, and decided to give it a try. The way he warps […]

Hooks and Loops of Steel

Well, the hooks are, anyway. I’m pretty sure craft wire is copper. But yeah, still with the wire crochet, and kicking myself for choosing what I think is the most ambitious of Yoola‘s beginner designs. It’s not that it’s difficult–once you learn how to do the stitches, it’s actually fairly easy, so long as you […]

So the Year Begins

It’s been a busy few days around here! Starting, of course, with the PIP passing his germs along to me, for which I owe him big time! I managed to avoid catching anything from the kids, only to get it from him. So now he’s over this plague, and it’s my turn to constantly hack up a […]
