The weather this weekend was nearly perfect for weaving in the garden. The goal was to finish a group project that was started last year, and was put on hold until the weather was warm and dry enough to set up the warp weighted loom on the patio. An unusually cool and wet spring postponed the project until now.
With the help of Jan Eichling, we wove 25 inches between Sunday afternoon and Monday evening. There were plenty of breaks for putting my feet up - one of the draw backs to a WWL is the standing. There are about five more inches of weaving left on this shawl and a little finish work, then it will go to it's recipient.
