ursulas_alcove: Robin of the hood woodcut (Rock On!)
I worked really hard this week to get this woven. And it came off the loom today! It could be a large shawl or a throw. Its about 41" wide and over 72" long. I will measure it officially after its been blocked. I dyed wool and have another ready to be warped shortly. I have some finishing work to do on the first large shawl before starting the second. After that, I rethread the loom for leg wraps. They are not challenging or even interesting but they should help pay the bills. Hockey season is wrapping up and I want to get as much done as possible before Lord Stanley dances. I listen to games while I weave. We follow both the Blackhawks and the Penguins. Without TV, its easier to work to the radio or livesteam radio.

Shawl #053

Meanwhile, I must make Viking hats for the upcoming Viking Festival in Ashville, OH at the end of the month. One almost done. We'll see how many I can finish before repetitive stress trashes my arm. The good news is I sold all but one at Gulf Wars. The bad news is I sold all but one at Gulf Wars. Must make stock toot sweet!
