A New Year

Here we go, with a fresh shiny new year!  Wonder what it will bring?

So far, wildlife in the back yard.  What is under the trampoline?

Cat and ?
Deer

This is some smart deer.  Why melt a spot in the snow and get snowed on top of when you can bed down under a trampoline?

This is the whole group the next day, about 9 am which is a bit late for deer to be out from cover, but I guess they feel safe here.  This is a doe and her two yearlings.  I’m guessing it is the same doe that had the twin fawns here a couple of years ago, if you’ve been following my blog that long!  I’m sure they were all enjoying my black raspberries.  Grrrr.

After my first rigid heddle loom success, I decided that this long languishing hand spun deserved some weaving love.  I split it roughly in half using my ball winder and a postal scale, then warped until I ran out of the first half of the yarn.  Somehow it came out so that the selvages will match!
Wild and crazy hand spun sock yarn!

Hand Spun Warp

This is what I’m working on tonight.  It is slower going, and it is going to be ‘holey’ when done, since the sett should really be closer.  But, I think it will be ok.  I’m really enjoying the slow color changes and can’t wait to get it off the loom to see the whole thing together.
