When I got home, the snow removal crew had been by and on a rather bitterly cold March day (-31 C - spring is supposed to be coming, soon, right?) they widened the streets and got rid of some of the ruts in the compact snow.
While this isn't a record year for snow accumulation by any means, I've been spoiled by being away to warmer climes not once, but twice so far this year, and I'd be just as happy if the March leonine winds arrived and started working their magic on the snow piles......
After having coffee with the neighbour and coming home to take my bp (which is spiking way too high - AGAIN! - I decided I needed some exercise and wove off the chenille scarf on Fanny.
I have several 'tapes' of various standard lengths that I use to track the length of my weaving. I had already woven one scarf yesterday, which can be seen on the cloth beam, and you can just see the cut line I've woven between the two scarves. (It probably shows up much better on the enlargement of the photo.) I cut between the two so that each scarf has several picks to help hold the fringe in place until the scarf can be fringe twisted. You can also see the fugitive picks at the beginning of the scarf which will be cut and pulled out as the fringe twisting is being done.
After dinner I finished sleying the warp on the AVL and started weaving. Here you can see the hem area and the first repeat or so. This photo has washed the colour out, so see a better representation of the colour in the photo below.
I've got less than a pound of the linen left so this 25 yard warp will definitely use that up. I will decide between the heavier natural (beige) linen singles and the natural single 6's cotton for weft once the linen is used up.
I'm seeing the doctor again tomorrow and I suspect I'm going to have to go back onto the Micardis, which I went off 2 weeks ago, or in some way tweak my medications. I've got a week until I leave for Boise, so if we make changes they have to be done tomorrow. :( I am not a happy camper my bp has gone wild again.................
