2021 in Review

A Year in Review

This year I concentrated (almost exclusively) on Miss A’s blanket. So, apart from that, I really didn’t finish much.

One pair of socks, a chicken (and a duck), and I worked on A’s quilt and my halloween cross stitch.

Next year I will be working on Miss P’s blanket, so once again not much will get done.

Weaving and Log Moderne Progress

Inkle Loom

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman with many crafts must want another one.

I have always been fascinated by weaving, but I didn’t want to invest the space or money to get a large loom. I tried card weaving, but it just didn’t work for me and then Kate Davies wrote about learning how to use an Inkle Loom and I was intrigued. I resisted for a while – do I really need another craft? And another piece of craft equipment? But then one of my students miraculously passed his OLNA and I decided I needed a treat.

I bought an Ashford Inkle Loom from The Good Yarn. I have watched some youtube videos and spent a very long time warping the loom. I am using DMC embroidery floss, but next time I will use cones from The Good Yarn.

As you can see from the image above, it is taking me a while to get the tension right, but I feel I am improving.

Log Moderne Blanket Progress

I am still working on my blanket for Miss A, I have just picked up for the last two squares, which are knitted simultaneously. It’s not going to be finished in time, but I don’t want to rush and ruin it.

Log Moderne

Progress on the blanket

I am still working (monogamously) on my Moderne Log Cabin – two more squares and the border to go after this one.

I have joined the Bluestocking club at KDD and I am very keen to get started on the first pair of socks. Socks and 18th century women – two of my great interests!

My inkle loom arrived today too – although it does require some assembly.
