I’m working hard to keep up with NaBloPoMo. So far so good!

I finally decided on what pattern to use for my mom’s Christmas shawl. And after one false start it is now coming out to be a pretty darn good project. If I do say so myself.

Last night I warped over 300 yds of black bamboo weaving thread. This morning I sleyed the reed of my Ashford 24″, 4 shaft, table loom.

Unfortunately, it looked to lacey to me so I ripped the weft thread out. I went on a hunt for a heavier weft thread and found several skeins of Classic Elite BamBoo that I bought when I first started knitting back in 2005. And I am loving it more than I can describe.

I’m probably going to spend the rest of the evening weaving on it. I’d love to have it done by the weekend if not sooner.

Today was also a great mail day for me. I got several back issues of Handwoven that I ordered. And the Handweaver’s Pattern Directory from Interweave. Which I probably won’t look at until tomorrow.

I also got this months sock club package from The Plucky Knitter. I love her sock colors so much! She has a great skill when it comes to dying yarn.

And just because I haven’t done it yet here on this blog, I’m going to share a cutsie picture of the love of my life, Harley. DSC00547
