I have been remiss

in posting lately. Life is taking on that hectic buzz that happens around crafts people at the approach to Christmas and students at the end of term. I am working on homework and weaving and fringing like mad trying to get things done.

I would also like to thank Valerie for her donation to my fibre knowledge. She sent me some raw alpaca fleece after I mistakenly called wet alpaca "greasy". The fleece is far from greasy. It is soft and looks ready to spin, although I have been warned that it will need to be washed. I can't wait to give it a spin, but unfortunately, I will, because I am up to my ears in "to do's". In two weeks, I should be able to slow down and enjoy the coming holiday season and the anticipation that the kids have at this time of year. As well as having a bit of time to finish my Blue Faced Leicester that came from Margene's in my yarn aboard box.

And a few more things off the loom and a few more things still on the loom. I can call this picture "the great unwashed" and unfringed for the most part. Must finish some of them before Thursday so they can be dry for market on Saturday. I might be keeping the purple one that is tossed over the loom. I'm liking it very much and I have yet to keep one of these silk scarves for my self. I am also approaching the end of this particular stash of silk and will have to find a new place to get some more because the people that I bought this from went out of business. Sigh.

Hmmmm. Nobody has left a comment. Unusual. Oh well. I will leave one. You still need to leave a post about the washing machine. :-)

Your weavings always turn out so nicely! And I have to agree with you about the whole holidays/end of semester crazyness! All I keep thinking to myself is "I just have two and a half more weeks of classes...then I'll have a ton more time for projects!"
