this and that

September 21, 2018

grrrr! the program I use to crop and edit photos

has decided to reinvent itself

it has added 3-5 extra clicks for each picture just to get it in my photo files

all of which takes more time and occasionally makes me say a naughty word or two

so –  I’ve been winding wool skeins into balls

it doesn’t take any technical skills or thinking

then winding a handspun wool and alpaca warp

to weave a cozy shawl – the temperature has definitely dropped

there’s a new warp on the tapestry loom

the white is handspun Cormo, I thought it might be too soft

but it packs down beautifully

that justifies buying more fleece to spin – right?

the black is alpaca and the blue is silk – I’m experimenting

and there are slits planned and changes in direction

the fun is in the fibre – not – computer programs

little stitches keep on going, like ripples in the sand

these gloves are a thank you gift although I didn’t do much to earn them

thank you Joanne

they are heavy-duty, 23 inches long and come up to my armpits

wow! I can almost go swimming in the indigo vat

or better yet, wear them to a Halloween costume ball – before they become blue

if anyone wants/needs a pair they came from Lee Valley Tools Ltd.

 in the garden

it is definitely Fall

the cyclamen is blooming everywhere

    I hate when computer stuff changes and I have to figure it out anew. The Weather Channel app just changed dramatically and I loathe it! You’re right–less of that, more of weaving and textiles. That’s the answer!

      Kerry – it seems that computer people think all of us enjoy spending all our waking hours solving new and useless technology. What happened to “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” ??? And WordPress is changing their format too!

    Just imagining what one looks like wearing those gloves makes me laugh. Thank you
