Since I Promised...

I went for my morning walk today. Wow, it doesn't take much time to go back to square one, does it? But then, square one is a good place to start again.

I saw more signs of spring in the park - some of our swans have cygnets, and the mother hens are bustling around with their chicks, teaching them to scratch for bugs. I took pictures with my cellphone, but Blogger wants to rotate them sideways, and I don't want you to get a crick in your neck, as my grandmere would say, looking at them like that. Anyone know how to make Blogger keep a picture's orientation intact?

I finished some handwoven scarves last week. Want to see?

I wove them all on my Schacht Flip rigid heddle loom. The first 3 are variations on some lovely handpainted yarns from Enchanted Knoll Farm. I'm particularly pleased with the last one, in Mediterranean colors - I handspun the warp yarn on a spindle.

I've spun quite a few skeins of yarn lately - I'll show you those later.


  1. You have cygnets, and we still have ice. Although, it suddenly went up to nearly 50, so I suppose I should more accurately say that we have running rivers of slush.

    I still love the scarves, and I've had them and you on my mind all week long so that when I finish the current deadlines tomorrow or Monday, I think I'll pull the Cricket out and see if I can make something other than body armor. ;-)

  2. Simply lovely! All of them. Lovely spinning ...lovely weaving ;-)

  3. They're gorgeous! I know it was a treat to the eyes to weave them. Beautiful job.

  4. LOVE the shawls. Beautiful!

    I upload my photos to Flickr first, then use the HTML to paste it into Blogger, so I don't know about Blogger troubles with photo orientation. I think that uploading to Flickr first saves time, but your results may vary. :-)
