Summer Projects

With two weeks (and a day) to go until summer vacation I am thinking about my summer projects. I joined the Tour de France Knit Along again and am going for a green jersey.

What am I knitting for it? Cycling socks. Not very challenging, I know, but I have an added twist. I am weaving a special garment for a special event that we are having in September. (NO! I'm not pregnant!!!)

Cotton and Silk

This requires that I reassemble my loom stand and clean it up.

See! All nice and oiled with Wood Beams. (Which is now making my hands itch!)
With loom attached ...

The first 60 warp ends are wound. Here we go!!!

Hey, I've been thinking about getting a Harp Loom lately. I used to use a rigid heddle loom in the 80's, but lost it on one of my many looms. Looking forward to seeing what you make with yours.
Enjoy your weekend!

Oh that looks like fun. Oh yeah like I need another hobby LOL. I can't wait to see what you come up with. It is by any chance a biker shirt?

You had to feed my current desire for weaving didn't you? :)

Please offer advice as to something I could contribute to this event ... beyond a small piece of paper ... please?!!

I have a little table loom that I got as a present. Too bad I don't know what to do with it. Maybe I should try again. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with yours.

Silk & cotton would make a lovely tallit perhaps.
