Our weather has been such a treat lately. I can't believe that my garden is still growing strong in mid-October; usually frost has killed it by mid-September.
The dogs are happy to be outside as much as possible. I bathed and groomed them all last week so they were ready for this photo shoot.
"Throw the toy! Throw it! Put that stinking camera away and throw it!"
"I am groomed and beautiful. This is my best side."
"Oh, all right. Take the stupid picture if you must."
"So many good smells out here this time of year."
Moving indoors, I warped the 15" Flip loom with 20/2 silk using two 8 dent reeds for a sett of 16. The weft is the Austin colorway fractal-spun laceweight handspun yarn. It sure takes a lot longer to weave than the fluffy baby throws that I've been doing lately but I love the resulting weft-faced fabric so far.
I feel so clever when I use my fractal-spun yarns. I really love the gradual and soft color transitions. I have no idea how I will finish the fringe. I've been mulling over possibly using beads. Any ideas would be welcome.
