We had another baby appointment this morning. Little one is doing fine. It has also been an interesting week for textiles. First, I finished the baby blanket. If you can’t see from the photo, it matches the carpet and rainbow bins nicely. It just needs to finish blocking. Am I allowed to tick off “knitting for baby” on my to-do list now?
I also made a horrible error in judgement. Would you like to guess who thought it would be a good idea to warp up her new-to-her Gilmore 8-shaft loom while 6 months pregnant? That’s right, this girl. Tying up treadles with a round belly is like playing Katamari Damacy and involves a lot of rolling on the floor. Guess who won’t be changing patterns for a while!
I warped her up with two handspun yarns I’ve had in my stash. One is a natural black alpaca from a dark boy named BamBam. I blended lots of copper sparkle into his fiber and came up with a beautiful warp. The second yarn is from rolags titled Indian Market from Willow Fairy Wool. I thought these colors paired nicely together. It’s nice to get something fiber-y done. The growing belly has definitely put some limits on what I can physically do. The mind is willing, though!
