Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah etc.
We are having a very white Christmas with lots of snow sparkling on the trees and ground and just now the sun has finally broken through the high overcast.
Doug and I will be going to my mom's for dinner later today but in the meantime I am looking forward to weaving on the blue/grey tea towel warp. The next warp is so pretty I'm anxious to get it into the loom to see how it looks woven up.
And yes, that is a pirn on my mantel - it's been modified to make a dandy candle snuffer. The hanging behind the tree is 2/8 cotton woven in Bronson Lace pick up. The motif is a butterfly. Hard to see, I know - it looks better hung in a window but I don't have an appropriate window in which to display it so we put it against the brick chimney.
