It’s been a wee while since my last post. It’s not been a particularly good few months, after my father died, a lot of other things happened and subsequently, I haven’t really had the energy or the desire to do much of anything except sleep.
So this is just a quick update. My good friend Laura recently sent me a Mirrix loom, which is currently sitting by the entertainment unit. I’m not sure what I’ll make on it yet, but I will use it, oh yes. I also got a second inkle, which I think I posted about and told Claire, a good friend who is a spinner and weaver, that she could have my little one, and she was thrilled about that. I bought some more yarn, because I am weak and yarn is pretty. Still haven’t started the clapotis, though the loom and yarn are sitting here, judging me.
I did get some great photos from my friends with their finished products, though. You may recall that over the last summer, I was weaving a wrap for my friend Vayshti who currently lives in the UK. I expect she and her partner will be there for some time, though they’re coming back to Australia to visit friends and family in October, and I’m looking forward to catching up. Anyway, she sent me a photo of herself wearing the wrap I did for her, and here it is:
The next photo is from my dear friend Erin, and is of her new son with the hexagonal baby blanket that I wove for him. She’d shown the photo around to mutual friends and they all commented on the blanket, which did give me the warm fuzzies and show that yes, I’m making some nice stuff, so that’s much appreciated. Anyhoo, here’s the photo:
