It’s more weaving! I warped the loom with a long length of linen/cotton then made some dishcloths. Whoo!

The weft for all of them is various scraps of Sugar and Cream and Peaches and Cream and other random cotton bits.

I left spaces between each piece, but the fringes were really difficult to tie on the middle ones, so next time I’ll leave a longer spacer.

They were mostly to practice and to use up some cotton scraps, but I think I’ll hang up one of the longer ones in the bathroom to use for a hand towel. Not sure about the others. They were mostly just fun to weave.

My selvages are, of course, awful, especially on the ones where I carried the stripe yarns up the side when I wasn’t using them. I’m not sure how to do that so it doesn’t look terrible, but this was a learning experience, so I’m not all that bothered.

Currently on the loom is some fabric for a bag I’m working on. In knitting news, I’m going back and finishing some WIPs. I frogged the Carousel socks (not enough yarn), though I definitely be making them again in a different yarn. I’m almost finished with Danish Summer, an errant test knit. Once that’s finished, I’m going to finish up the sleeves and collar on my self-designed Diamonds sweater. Then cast on for ALL THE THINGS. I’m feeling like a sweater kind of year. Though I need to make some more mittens/gloves cause I don’t have that many.

In reading news: Joe and I are reading Heir to the Empire. OH MAN MY FEELINGS. In life news, I have a semi-long-term nanny gig (for six months probably) but it’s still only part time and I need a real job at some point. So there’s that. How are y’all?
