Last Saturday I was able to get started on my Viajante with a couple of friends. This is a really easy project.....not going to be quick!..... but definitely TV watching or knitting in public project.
I also wanted to share a weaving project I started a long time ago. This pic was taken on 5-5-2011 showing the warp done using my suri yarn with accents of white/silver lace mohair. I just knew it would be stunning. Problem......I love woven items but just DO NOT like to weave.
Luckily I live close to Ms. Wonder Why and several other friends who get together on a monthly basis. You know.....share our projects, support i.e. enable, laugh, eat and sometimes whine. I'm always admiring Ms. Wonder Why's woven items as well as those woven by our friend Terri and always felt bad about not getting this scarf done.
Fast forward to October 2012: "the girls" all came to my house to support me during my annual Arts and Eats show. Of course there were beautiful finished woven items shared by Andrea and Terri and you guessed it.....mine was still not done!
Once again I was talking about trying to find the gumption to get back to working on my scarf. Even though I don't have any pics of my weaving, I did have maybe about 1/4 of the scarf woven at this time. Terri looked at me and asked, "do you want me to take your loom and finish that for you?" I could not say, YESSSS! fast enough. Luckily for me she had set aside one of my beaded shawl pins and I quickly said "I'll gladly give you the pin for finishing my scarf" and a deal was struck. After almost 2 years on my loom.....my scarf is born.
