|And it is a beauty|
|I'm really quite pleased with myself|

Instead, I restarted the baby alpaca cardigan from a million years ago. This time I am keeping track of where I am, but hopefully that won't be an issue because I WILL NOT put it aside for another five years.
|After the sock, it's weird to (a) be crocheting something, and (b) be using such huge yarn.|
In three bundles.
And dragged my poor neglected Baby Wolf out into the light.
And got out my weaver's bible.
|Honestly, anyone who's thinking about weaving should get this book. I never start a project without it at my side.|
And then wound it onto the back beam and inserted the lease sticks into the cross.
Usually I try to do all these steps where the loom lives, in a corner in my bedroom. Never again! It was so much easier to drag the loom into the living room where I had room to maneuver. Next up: threading the heddles and sleying the reed. I won't be able to start weaving until my cabin project is done though. I only have two shuttles and they're both in use at the moment.
All in all, not a bad week, craft-wise.
