Attended a Christmas gathering yesterday dressed in purple instead of our typical ugly Christmas sweaters. I took the opportunity to wear the brand new cashmere sweater that was a gift from my lovely, talented, great shopper daughter-in-law and son. Yes, she comes first because she found the sweater and knew I would love it. A special thank you to them.
Back in the studio work continues on the new kit. We wanted to add a scarf kit to our popular towel/placemat/table runner kits we feature in our Etsy shop. I am weaving as fast as possible to complete the sample and am concerned about my weft picks per inch. I believe I am going to run out before I complete weaving the 78″ needed for a finished size of 66″. I calculated the weft based on 10 picks per inch (ppi) and I keep measuring as I weave. I’m going to double check my calculations on my project sheet before I return to weaving. I am also going to measure my ppi again and see where I am.
New photos of the sample to follow soon.
