Oh gosh, don't expect to see the start of weaving. We're not there yet, but I am about 2/3 through all the threading now. This was taken at just under half.
It's slow going because a redo for a threading error would be a pain and if there is a mistake on the middle layer I might not spot it since that is the one layer that cannot be seen easily from either top or bottom.
The 30 epi gets a crammed feeling in the heddles.
I can't imagine taking this yarn to 15 epi except for coat fabric. It seems like it would be pretty stiff. I have had company while working though. It's so cute. When the cat leaves his bed, even though it is very small, someone spies the empty bed within minutes and takes over. This time it was Peter.
He folds himself up in there in the most amazing way until he's nothing more than a small furry donut with ears, eyes and a nose. Jack was happily snoozing in his
bed next to this one, both next to the loom.
I came home with neither buffalo nor lobster yesterday, much to Gene's relief! I can only imagine what the horses would do upon seeing a couple of buffalo. Dandy actually has a lot of "cow" sense and has no problems with herding them. Cooper, not so much. Nick has seen a cow or two and youngsters Boo and Imp have never seen one. In any event, horses are visual creatures and a buffalo looks nothing like a cow. All the horses noticed the new glasses even when people did not. Both dogs and horses are masters of body language and facial expressions and I would be hard pressed to say who was better. Horses certainly have the edge with body language and dogs may be a bit better with facial expressions. Goats just want to know if you have raisins in your pocket for treats. Buffalo=Rodeo. ;-)
So back to weaving content. I have the whole housebound weekend before me, the blanket to get ready to start and that prayer flag warp that has to be done by next weekend. I have an order from the pet store I put the two in that sold. She'll take as many as I can weave.
The festival and show season has started around Ashland. This weekend is the Clayfolk Show & Sale. It's one of my very favorites here and sadly, due to the first big snowstorm moving in today, I don't think I'm going to make it. The prediction of snow is ranging anywhere from 6 inches up to 14 inches and possibly higher. They never really know up here in the mountains. We'll wait and see how the roads pan out on the first true plowing of the season. It looks like it's going to be a white Thanksgiving!
