Surpriiiiiiise! A few routine (but very belated) blog updates led to a big ol’ crash yesterday, which in turn led to this new bloggy look. I’m not 1000% in love, but I actually have plans to move this whole thing to another platform in a few months, so this’ll do for now.
Anyway, I’m multitasking a little here. I’m testing whether my RSS feed is still working, and I thought I’d share a couple nice fiber-y things with you at the same time.
Up above there is a beautiful woven journal my Mom made me recently. The cover is a piece of saori weaving – she uses plain ol’ cardboard as her loom! (You can learn how she does this right over here.) I know I’m going to love using it.
…And, I’ve been taking yet another run at learning to knit. This time is going much better, thanks to the power of Twitter. How awesome is it to be able to whine about one’s knitting problems publicly, and then get showered with helpful advice and links? Extremely awesome.
So I’m making an attempt at a striped scarf, using leftover yarn from yet another crochet project that turned inexplicably hideous in my hands.
The fiber arts, they confound me. Happy Weekend, everyone!
