Yes, I still have two of the homeschool conference talk summaries to type up.
And, if you’re keeping track of these things, I started several series (de Tocqueville comes immediately to mind) that I have failed to ever get past “part 1” on.
And, no, I haven’t posted any garden pictures. No, it isn’t a complete muskrat-ravaged wasteland; there’s lots of gorgeous stuff growing, and I have pictures.
Right now, I keep trying to catch up with the rest of the stuff going on around here to allow more time to play with this:
Yep, that’s the first project. No, I didn’t really do the warp right, so it only goes from the front to the back bar. Plus, as you may notice on the left-hand side, one warp was pulled through the heddles (the wires in frames that go up and down with the levers on the top right) out of order, so it didn’t shift properly and got completely left out. And the edges are all loopy because I was more interested in the cool levers and stuff than making the weaving neat, and I miscalculated the threads per inch I needed (by a factor of two or so).
But it made a great dishrag for the kids’ play kitchen. They loved it and polished everything in sight with it.
It’s a good bet that they’ll be getting some more dishrags and probably a bunch of dishtowels for their play kitchen as I continue to experiment.
