|Found these two on the way home|
As I work towards moving, I decided to warp my loom again, this time to use up some yarn I had as well to simply create something. I ended up making a pretty checked lightweight shrug. The warp is 8/2 cotton and knitting yarn while the weft is cashmere I received from someone in 2015.
I found that it was too long for one item, so I split it into half and created a shrug which I'm currently knitting the edging. I think the other half will be turned into another shrug as well, or maybe the top of a sweater. I'm still debating.
It's been fun to work on something beautiful, warm and relatively easy these past few weeks. I'm looking forward to moving to Seoul to find more knitting stores - maybe even take a trip to Japan to find some weaving yarns.
The future holds bright opportunities; I'm looking forward to exploring them.
On a side note - did you enjoy the Year of Short Stories? Would you like me to continue? Would you rather a serialized story published weekly or a collection of stories as I did this past year? It's an interesting challenge regardless which I do.
