So, what has sucked up my time? First, I have been busy winding warps for the weaving kits we sell HERE in our Etsy shop. I have also been spinning and getting to know my new Schacht cherry Matchless wheel. And, finally, I have been busy selling some of my looms.
My goal for our Etsy shop is to have at least a dozen kits available at all times. I had to take a short break after 6 (there are five in the shop and a 6th one ready to add). I’ve been having pain and swelling in my right knee and it’s flared up so it may have to wait another week.
I am getting acquainted with my cherry Matchless. I love the wheel ad it has several different features from the Sidekick which we have owned since last November. One of the first projects I finished was this bright pink wool/silk which I am using to make a lace scarf for my daughter in law. I have the pattern and once I am done knitting the hat I have in progress, I’ll start her scarf. She is not likely to want it for a few months. She has another 5 months of her deployment to Afghanistan as a Captain in the US Army. I can be calm about it right now, she and my son are on R&R for a few more days.
Have a great holiday weekend. Look for me at the Nationals game Saturday afternoon. GO NATS!! I’ll be wearing my Strasburg t-shirt and my curly W hat.
