I have been having trouble with blogger for a few weeks. I can't get onto anyone's blog and keep getting error messages. There are time like this one rare moment that I can actually get on to post, so I'll update you on what's been happening in my world.

I purchased two weaving books, one was a gift from my kids and the other one from myself. I'm excited to read them through and start planning some new projects. I gave up and conceded defeat on the scarf, it kept breaking down and I just could not deal with it any longer. I started warping for the simple baby blanket and that should give me some easy work for a bit.

I also had the reeds sandblasted to get the rust off them, after a few months of trying and not really getting to far I decided it was the best route to go. I need to clean them and take a steel wool pads to smooth them out they feel a bit rough. Hopefully I'll be able to use them without any damage to the warp, if not then they will be tossed and I will have to acquire new reeds.

So far that's what I've got going, I hope you all are doing great. Once I figure out what's happening with my access to blogger I plan to visit with everyone for a bit.

Well, you have been busy! Those are both great books.
Good luck with the reeds and the connections to blogger.

Both of your books are great!! I'm sure you'll enjoy them.

Good lucky with your blogger problems.

I know how you feel about the reeds. I've already tossed a couple because I couldn't get them clean. Good luck!

Those are nice books! I have both, and have learned a lot from Mastering Weave Structures, and made some projects from the Handweaver's Patern book, so I think you'll really enjoy them.
