I have managed to get together a new warping reel.
This is a reel from Gilmore and yes, it has a brake. A very nice brake!
I like this set up better than a vertical reel. I can sit and wind without excessive reaching. I always had trouble getting a workable height with the Harrisville reel. Look for that to appear for sale at some point and if someone is interested in it contact me via e-mail.
That is a Christmas towel warp. Bet you couldn't tell huh?
Here is the pattern from WEBS. I have to be honest, I like ready made drafts.
Maybe I'm lazy, but I never felt it as a burning desire to design my own drafts. That doesn't mean I follow the drafts 100% but I like that starting point as ignoble as it is.
Knitting has also been on the list of doable activities while sick.
As has football
|I caught the Pats game earlier in the day....Go Pats!|
and cuddling with my peeps so to speak. A grand little bunch of nursemaids and heated bricks.
The other thing I've done is get together bundles of yarn
and a few choice weaving books for a give-away. This will be a pay it forward deal like always. More next post likely over the weekend.
I want to mention how utterly embarrassed I was by that asshat occupying the White House today at the U.N. Imagine what the world at large must think of a man who needs to hurl silly monikers at another countries leader like this is a junior high tiff? OMFG. Mr. Mueller, please hurry up.
