Something(s) To Show
I've been weaving!
These dishtowels were made on my Flip with the 8 dent heddle. Cotton chenille with crochet cotton for the hems.
The Other Half really liked my first effort, so I made some more. I warped once then used a different weft pattern on each to make them fraternal.
(And truth be told, I'll make some more, but the others are a gift, so I won't show and tell until they get to their destination.)
This one was made of multiple strands (I think 4) of a very fine cotton yarn, something along the lines of a 20/2, or about the weight of fine sewing thread. i'm thinking that I won't be making more of like this.
It was a good experience, just not one I'd want to repeat and so I probably won't.

We've Been Keeping This Under Wraps
The Not-So-Tiny Prince has abdicated his title in favor of a new one! (If you click on the picture, you should be able to read it.)
Last weekend, we went here.
to meet the new Tiny Prince.
He is very tiny! And Brand New.
Welcome Conor Quinn McManus, born September 28, 2010. Coming home tomorrow!

Jennifer D (whose Mittnz photo you have already seen) finished several more pairs in time for mailing.
She sent me the picture you see at the right.
Wanna get in on the action? You have until Friday (October 8) to get your 10 Mittnz photo to me (abmcmanusATverizonDOTnet) and get those Mittnz in the mail.
