So, what I say? Another long-ish delay since I last opened this blog, but it’s not for want of thinking about it. I’ve discovered, (or rather, “admitted to myself“), that I can weave or I can blog, but I can’t blog about weaving and weave – I don’t have the time for both – and sometimes I have the time for neither…and then there are babies, house-work, sale shopping, grocery shopping, and going to “full-time-paid-grown-up-work-at-the-office” all to consider.
The good news is that my withdrawl has been for a nice commission to weave a scarf for a lady in Japan (and go shopping in the sales!) – I’ve been rummaging for yarns, making wee wrapings, Pixeloom-ing designs and generally filling my evenings with the little pleasures of warping, winding and threading (I’m still threading up but hope to get started on Sat or Sun). Pictures of these efforts to follow.
I’ve avoided house-work and grocery shopping, and this week we’re trying grocery shopping online for the first time – fingers crossed it goes well, as I would really like to give up the 2-3 hours we seem to spend at the market, butchers and supermarket on a Saturday morning…It’s doubtful I’ll be able to spend the time saved Weaving, but I can always hope!

I find it takes quite a lot of time put put together an interesting blog post, with thinking about what to write and where to start, getting some good photos and then actually putting it all together. I tend to weave first, then blog about it later at my leisure.
I look forward to your photos of the scarf for the lady in Japan 😉
Thanks Dot – I’ve eventually got around to putting up some images – I take my moments when I can, when it comes to blogging! (Unfortunately it doesn’t always coincide with having done anything worth blogging about).
