been quite an adventure here at the weavery lately...had a new washer/dryer stacked unit installed and a new water heater, all in the same day in the very small bathroom. afterwards, floors needed cleaning and the closet needed putting back together along with a small mountain of laundry (been without a washer since two days before christmas). glad that's done!
now, onto weaving a baby blanket for my new niece. it'll be made out of 8/2 cotton, natural colored, for the warp and 8/4 and 4/4 cotton for the weft, light green/light blue/natural colors. yes, i said niece, not nephew! might throw some purple in there, too, just see how it goes. the finished blanket will be 36" x 36" so it will be done on the new big loom. the warp calculations declare i need 916 warp ends, each 5 yards long. oh my.
