It Could Go Either Way

I've started a new scarf warp to put on Hannah. I love the fibers, I love the colors but even with that great start I'm not to sure about how this will look once done. The combo is Mountain Colors Winter Lace and Frabjous Fibers Sari Ribbon. The sari ribbon might end up being a little to ragged and uneven in the scarf. Of course it could be really fun and interesting too. Guess we'll all find out soon enough!
While I was winding the lace yarn ( all 1200 yards of it) I had supervision as you can see.
Jack wants to get to know all facets of weaving. He really does intensely watch what you do. I love those little flopped triangle ears, they speak to me.

Pogo quit the little dog bed once the swift got going and went and hung with his peep Gene.
Smoochie and his cat couldn't be bothered with our goings on. They were happily curled up together on the comfy chair.

The sofa was similarly occupied with the rest of the four legged household Everyone spent our dreary rainy Tuesday just as they pleased.


  1. What a great day to wind a warp! That scarf warp looks very interesting....can't wait to see it on the loom.

  2. I love that picture of your puppy and cat on the chair they both look so tired.

    Love the color of the yarn!

  3. One of the most exciting aspects of weaving are the surprises that often result. I think that combo of warps will be fun no matter how it turns out.

  4. I look forward to seeing the results of that. I love the sari silk yarn and that ribbon stuff is beautiful, too. I used it in a scarf on my inkle, but it didn't work out well.
    I agree that the colors look beautiful!

  5. I like the colors of your warp and looking forward to seeing how your suprise scarf turns out.

    Ah, the life of a much loved cat and dog. Doesn't get any better.

  6. The colors and the textures look exciting, I look forward to see the fabric!

  7. Smoochie and his cat are a pin-up photo. Charlie needs a Smoochie.

  8. 當一個人內心能容納兩樣相互衝突的東西,這個人便開始變得有價值了。..................................................

  9. So very darling. :)

    My house has a similar look only it's balls of yarn and Labrador Retrievers spread all over the place.


  10. I feel like I skipped ahead to the end of the story and ruined the suspense. It is a gorgeous warp though. (You know, with my penchant for delays, I would have let it sit on the loom for months before letting go of it!)


    PS: The phoebes are back at our house this morning. It's like they read your suggestion about a second clutch or something!! I'm happy to see them!

  11. How great to have the help! Especially one that will just watch rather than try to participate!
