Okay, so this is embarassing, but I'm going to play my first get out of jail free card - and it's only Day2! Argh!
I woke up this morni... no, that's not quite right. I GOT up this morning but I never honestly woke up until this evening. I spent the whole day staggering around and staring blearily at the computer, waiting for the waking up to start... but it just never did. Long story short: I took a nap instead of weaving, and then because of Various Technical Issues1 ran out of time.
So here it is, almost 1 aye em, and I figure I can do two of the following three things: finish the scarf, write a blog post, or get a proper night's sleep so that the same thing doesn't happen tomorrow. Ima go with #2 and #3.
Here's how Scarf #43 is shaping up:
It's almost exactly the same palette as the Peony scarves I did last year, except that I really wanted to use some boucles so changed the shade of green and white slightly in order to use what I had on the shelf. I guess I'll call it PeonyII?
This time I'm weaving in it 4/8 cotton instead of in 8/8, and set at 12 EPI rather than 10. I wound 90 ends, so it's 7.5" in the reed. It's hardly drawing in at all, in part due to the lovely new small sized Schacht EFS that my dear ol' Mum gave me for Christmas:
The weft is an 2/8 orlon - I think. It's some mystery yarn that's been on the shelf for Some Time but I'm pretty sure that's what it is even tho' it doesn't feel quite like the other 2/8 orlon I've gotten in recent years. I'm apparently beating it in at 12 PPI, at least in the inch I just measured. ;)
The scarf's about 46" long right now, so well over half way. My plan is to finish it up in the morning, and my hope is to weave another scarf for Day3. We'll see how that turns out tomorrow, now won't we? Hopefully I'll get plenty of rest tonight and won't be so tired tomorrow that even my autopilot is set to Stunned Zombie.
See you then!
No other links for today (yet!) but Liz of Lizzie Plays With Clay and Shari of Red Twig Brown Twig have both said they'll participate in Project February in some fashion, too. Really excited to see what you come up with, guys!
2. It was broken when I opened the package! Really it was! But I'm still anxious about fiddling around with those tension screws. Yikes.
