After all the rushing about of the past weeks, suddenly today I had no urgent tasks. So I started by walking on the common. We are walking Hadrian's Wall next year and I must stay fit and it is back to leaving the house at 0730 and back by 9 for breakfast.
I looked at all my paperwork and everything that should have been done, has been done! So after tidying the house up, I set out on the Hana-ori. I checked the tension and the threading and then started looking for the right colours of yarn for the pattern. The warp and the ground are 30/2 cotton so I decided 12/2 cotton was probably the right weight for the pattern. I made a great discovery about me as a result. I don't like baby blue. I have no baby blue yarn of any weight or fibre! I found a small scrap in a bag of oddments which I think I acquired after a class.
Later on I wove a bit on the Louet. Quite slow. It is double weave and fine tencel so there are a lot of weft threads per inch. I did four inches in an hour so six inches day is feasible. I need to adjust the chair height as it is too low.
I had a lovely birthday present today from Debbie -
