Weaving, check.

Whee!  Have assembled my little baby Cricket rigid heddle loom, warped it, and am almost done weaving the scarf project that comes with the loom.  This really is blazingly fast, compared to knitting (at least at my admittedly sad knitting speed).  It's not perfect - my selvedges really do suck - but it's fun.  Plus now I get to add weaving to spinning, knitting and sewing.  Now all I need is to add dyeing and fiber prep! 

Next up, finish this scarf and figure out how to warp on some Noro!  At this rate, I really might drop my stash below life expectancy!*




* Not really - if nothing else, I can always spin my own yarn.

Hmmmffff. . . this from an IP lawyer! I've read some of those briefs, young lady! :-)

It is sort of a weird language of its own. Knitting has some of that, but not a lot, and spinning is the same way. Weaving really does have a lot of technical, idiosyncratic terms.

It truly is! You should drop by and try it some time! :-)

Oh, and the Folkwear update I got yesterday said there are some patterns coming out you might like - you should check it out.

From their webpage:

Meanwhile, we're moving ahead with the design and development of #269 1914 Metropolitan Suit (companion to the recently-published #269 Metropolitan Hat). The Suit will feature subtle pre-World War I military styling in a short jacket over a two-layer slightly hobbled skirt. The pattern will also include a very cute sailor-styled blouse to wear separately with the skirt. Our fingers are crossed for a late-year release.

Realizing, of course, that that's a little before your time period, still sounds interesting.
