In Need of Some Loving

Do you know what happens when you discover a new passion, a new love?  This …



Yes, this is my pile of languishing and neglected works-in-progress.  Ever since I started weaving on my rigid heddle loom, whatever free time I have is spent gleefully warping and wefting.  But here's the thing ~ the other night, I learned that weaving isn't conducive to watching movies or chatting with friends.  In fact, I need to pay a lot of attention to what I'm doing and taking my eyes off the loom leads to some rather bad mistakes!

After coming to terms with the fact that I'm not a social weaver (or at least not yet), I need to pull out my knitting again and catch up with my summer list of movies to watch and all the coffee dates I want to make with friends.

Let's see if I can get these projects off the needles before the end of July because in all honesty, I've got a whole slew of weaving projects I'm dying to work on.  ; )

  1. Good luck with getting those WIPs moving again. The weaving looks and sounds amazing, I'm nit at all surprised to hear it is also addictive.

  3. That Malabrigo is eye candy.

  4. I'm always believe you should do what you are passionate about because hobbies are meant to be enjoyed, not to feel like a chore! But it's always great when you have different passions to keep you busy (even while watching movies). Enjoy your knitting and weaving!

  7. I think that it's great to have several different projects in the works. That way, you don't get bored. Although it can be a juggling act to try to make time for everything. Wish there was a way to knit and sleep at the same time ;)
