No pictures today, but a brief update:
- For Mother's Day, son and hubby combined efforts to make me a copper pipe tapestry loom. They combined the best aspects of the PVC loom in Kids Weaving and Archie Brennan's copper pipe looms. I am so thrilled to have this for the workshop I'm taking at the end of June. My plans are to weave a sampler from this book book in the next week or two.
- I've been knitting on Hyrna Herborgar with handspun cashmere singles. The yarn has been spun for awhile but no project seemed to fit. Then Ted posted his completed shawl and I went immediately into lemming mode. (Must have been Md. Sheep and Wool influence!). I'm on row 85 of 127 rows, but it's a triangular shawl knit from the center back neck, so the rows are getting more and more stitches.
- Meanwhile spring continues apace. Just picked up 6 hosta plants on the way home from the gym that will need to go in the ground. Will also have to pick up about 5 flats of impatiens to fill out the beds in the basement walk out. Even tho' we had temps in the 80's, Michigan soil is still a bit cool for the impatiens. I've learned from experience that they will not fill in much once they've had cold feet.
