Above is a shot of the warp chain I am planning to put on my loom next. The natural colour is linen, the purples are cotton and the hits of gold are superwash wool. Let's hope they all get along somewhat in the shibori-crimp cloth project I am planning. I am excited to be using linen that I brought all the way from Lithuania as a youngster.
In and amongst unpacking and cleaning house I have completed one knit project already. This is the Mineral shawl from the book Free-Spirit Shawls. Rosemary Hill designed it but I took creative license and used alpaca and linen blend yarns I had on hand. I do still need to block it although I suspect not much change will result.
