It is bright and sunny, but a mere 8 degrees out and the wind is still whipping around the corners of the house. This month has been brutal, though thankfully we were spared in the weekend snow storm and only got a few inches.

I made some progress on the looms last week. This is a cotton/linen warp that is destined to be dish towels. I’ll be weaving an 8 shaft plaited twill for the first time (if all goes well.)


On the knitting side of the business I’ve been filling orders for pedicure socks, working on a sweater commission and I’m close to finishing a batch of hats for Carrie Cahill Mulligan.  I knit some hats for her, she does all the hard work  of felting them and adding the stunning embroidery.  If you don’t have one yet, you should definitely treat yourself.  They are so warm and keep out the cold winter wind.  This is mine and I wouldn’t part with it for anything!
