Where to Begin

No, I have not dropped off the face of the earth. And thank you very much for all your kind words for my weaving. As you may have guessed, I have been sucked even more thoroughly into that pleasurable morass known as weaving, probably in response to an unbearably long winter and to excessive stresses at work. (And we can also blame a touch of tennis elbow keeping me from spinning, and a touch of carpal tunnel kepping me from knitting.)

So what have I been weaving? Ohboyohboyohboy I am bouncing up and down in my chair, literally, I'm so excited to show you this. I am weaving this!

There are four repeats in the main body of the shawl, with borders on either end - I've just started the fourth repeat. Stay tuned!

Wow - THAT is gorgeous! Makes me wish I could weave. Because, of course, I need another hobby. :D

You need a bumper sticker that says, "Born to Weave." Of course, the other drivers might think you mean in traffic and wonder if you're DWI. But the rest of us will know what it means.

gorgeous! I love the colors. You are clearly a very careful and painstaking weaver. This is not easy to weave and get right. The threading alone can drive a weaver up the wall! Congratulations!

This is stunning! Another scarf/shawl? Or is it destined for something else? I think you must have a very large house or very little furniture to fit a loom in. :)

That just takes my breath away! Omygosh... I can't even imagine how painstaking it must have been to get all that pattern right (and I only have a very very basic knowledge of weaving!)... Something I've thought about learning, but have been able to resist the temptation. Mostly thanks to the fact that I have zero space to more stuff into.

Great job though, it's absolutely gorgeous!!!!!
