New Things

Lots of new things happening here since I last posted. One reason I haven't been knitting (or blogging) much lately is because I started a new job!

Another new thing? I learned how to weave! Last month, I took a beginning rigid heddle workshop at Knit One One, taught by Brooke (of Tactile). I really enjoyed it.

Our project for the workshop was a plain weave scarf. I used a little over two skeins of Hand Jive Nature's Palette fingering weight (color NP 124 - orchid).

It's more tightly beaten at the beginning than the end, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

My most recent new thing is a rigid heddle loom (15 inch Schacht Flip) which arrived last week. Off to rummage through my stash for yarn for my next weaving project!
