The structure did not allow me to enjoy my new loom at all so after a mere 10 inches I cut the whole thing off and rethreaded and sleyed for a fun variation on M's & O's. We are both very happy campers now.
The David is a capable weaving loom, quiet, easy to thread and tie up, great shed and a sliding beater. The beater was a bugger to get adjusted well. Just a smidgen off and it works but feels sticky. Once you have it though it is very nice to use. So post honeycomb, I am loving my new little loom and I think this warp will be awfully pretty as runners and placemats!

Precious little has come out of the sewing salon. Today I need to do some cutting for fall. I did finish up this last Webster.
Could be a favorite for fall. It looks pretty sweet with a navy cardigan and a pair of slim jeans too!
I did find myself in downtown Ashland Thursday. The Web-sters sends out little newsletters weekly featuring new yarns or patterns. It's an evil thing I tell you. ;-) One shawl caught my eye and made it onto the must have list.
I wasn't particularly thrilled with the yarn used so went rogue and purchased some of my favorite Shepherd's Wool Yarn for the project. A nice value too. I'm about 4 inches into the project. Good simple knitting on bigger needles. My kind of project these days.
After the horrible clear cut next door our wildlife all but disappeared, but this late summer, Momma Raccoon has got another batch of 3 kits and just as cute and fractious as last years nursery. I've spied a fox a few occasions and some of the bird population has returned to our little neck of the woods. The hummers have been active and plentiful this summer after a slow start. The deer have been almost nonexistent. Their numbers appear to way down. It has been awfully smokey though, enough to make my eyes water and my throat feel scratchy. I have not ridden at all this summer but the boys are experienced pasture pets and go with the flow.
To all the people experiencing hurricanes and floods and fires along with those who have lost loved ones on the USS John McCain, thoughts and prayers (and donations) are heading out. If you are wanting to help with disaster relief for Hurricane Harvey victims there are some good options listed here for both people and animals. There is so much need right now, please give what you can where you can. You'll feel better for it, I promise. :-)
Parting shots: Pensive and not so much so.
