I've started a new project. It is a scarf made of cotton. It's narrow compared to what I've been doing lately!
I started threading the reed, and decided that I needed a reed where the dents are closer together so got the 8 dent out. Perfect!
Then I looked in my pattern book and I wanted to try log cabin - which I've never done before. (there are a LOT of patterns I have not done before - I'm big on plain weave!).
I thought I had everything threaded right.....but I didn't.
I had to unthread about half the heddles and take them out of the reed. I re-threaded like the pattern actually SAYS it it is supposed to be....which I missed the first time.
So while dinner was cooking I rethreaded. I did it correctly!
Then I had to figure out the weaving issue. One line of each color...hmmm. I got it figured out and it's coming out REAL nice. :-)
I'm using dark and light denim cotton from Peaches and Cream. It looks nice.
I want to try to make a scarf a day for 30 days. We'll see how that goes. LOL
No pics. This scarf might be a gift, and I don't want the giftee to see it! Maybe a tease when it gets done....
My car is in the shop. The Check Engine light came on while I was driving. Turned around, came back home, and took the pickup which stinks! Whew.
Hubby took the car in and I went and picked him up. Of course there is a part that needs replaced. The car is only 18 months old. 26,000 miles. Geesh. They just don't make them like they used to. Sometimes I wish life were MUCH simpler.
So I'm off for now. Gonna go watch a couple of shows we taped. Then we'll watch Dancing with the Stars and 19 Kids and Counting, and The Little Couple (finale is tonight - geesh, it seems it just started!!!). Yeah, um, can you tell I'm a reality show freak?
