Winter weaving

Someone said something at SOAR that rang true for me (actually I imagine lots of things were said at SOAR that rang true for me, this one I happened to hear). Denny said that her common response to the remark "Oh, I just don't have the time to do that," while she's spinning or knitting in public is, "We all have the same amount of time."
It's so true. It is just how we use it. I do like sleeping, but sometimes, getting something done feels so good.

Amid the toys and the wonderful chaos of work and children that is my life, I made some time this weekend to warp my loom and start weaving some scarves. This is a delicate 2-ply wool handpainted yarn that I won as a door prize in 1996, I think. I've been using it here and there, and this weekend I used a big chunk of it!

Hannah helped me wind the warp onto the loom. Sarah wanted to help and sat on my lap as I wove.
