And thank heaven for the wonderful search function in Windows 7 which quickly brought up my files on the acrylic baby blanket I woven several years ago for our grandson.
And why should this matter?
Our church has started a prayer shawl group. I went to the first meeting, but when the meetings were set on a day I could not come, I fully expected I would knit on a prayer shawl at home. The more I thought about it, the less I liked it. I have too many other things right now that I would rather knit and not enough loose time (i.e., car travelling, doctor waiting, etc.) to do it all. But…………..
I could weave one!
The baby blanket I had made provided the perfect model. Machine washable, the right grist. Perfect. So I worked out the numbers.
I was going to wait a bit before ordering the yarn. And then I thought, no, do it now. So I ordered to cones, one a light dusty blue, one a medium blue. I will weave large checks of these two colors.
But…………..the current warp still has to come off the loom. I am getting close to actually doing it!
