Knitting Progress

Books I Love


Into the blue

Céline asked for more progress photos – so here it is, into the blue shades:

The warp dyeing was a bit blotchy at this stage, but I’m telling myself that adds character!

I’m pleased with progress, even though it will seem painfully slow to some weavers. If I was able to sit down for a full day, or even for hours at a stretch, I would get it down very quickly, but as it is I get half an hour here and there in between all the other work I should be doing – PhD and writing have to get fitted in, in addition to my job. Weaving is my ‘play’ time.

I’ll start shading in the green next – but as today and tomorrow are all-day work days, it may not be until later in the week.

    Thank you!!! From here, it looks marvelous. I’m just always in awe of those color transitions and mixes… and I guess I derive vicarious weaving pleasure from watching what you do.

    As for having to work on crafts a bit at a time, I’m there with you. It was like that too when I was writing my thesis. I felt it kept my juices going. And I was always surprise at how much 20 minutes here and 30 minutes there amount to in the long run.

    Have a great week 🙂
