On Stoles, Part III: Stoles were woven


Ooph, what a weekend! There were looms and birthdays and loads of shopping and a long day's drive and when I emptied my suitcase onto the bed last night it looked like a book/game/yarn/clothing store had exploded. Today was super busy as well but Mom, bless her heart, got the loom tied up for the stole and wove the first couple feet. I took over at the first colour stripe and accidentally kept going until it was done. (Well, until the length we'd calculated was done anyway - I'm trying not to be too concerned about the fact that there's still a good yard on the loom even though I don't remember adding that much extra. Must've done. I... hope? Gnaah.)

No time or energy to write any proper sort of post, so hopefully these pics will be an acceptable substitute and give you an idea of how it's shaping up:






Tomorrow I'll introduce you to my Spanky New Rigid Heddle(tm) loom!

The stole looks very nice on the loom, will be interested in seeing a picture after it is "wet finished". Yes, we all add a little extra when we are warping (or at least most of us do). Some I know don't and wonder why they don't have enough for their project. Enjoy your mom's visit - I know you will have fun.
