A lesson in Doubleweave (my first) was taken from Handwoven as a nice small project, to get the idea behind Doubleweave and also how pickup fits into the picture. I apologize for the colors, I just used scrap yarn to try to get as close as I could to the Handwoven project colors.
The cherries are in season now. This is my second round on one tree. Probably will pick another round tomorrow night. These are Stella cherries and come on a little bit earlier than the Bings. They are wonderful for snacks.
There are a group of deer that hang out on the property on a regular basis. They are quite at home and don't seem to be in any hurry to leave. This morning as I was out on the deck admiring the beautiful weather, when they decided to come in for a morning snack. There is a dwarf peach tree that they all seem to like. They hung around until I walked over to them and made them leave. Otherwise, I wouldn't have a flowerbed left.
A weaver friend gave me some organic cotton yarn as a gift, with the intention of working up a scarf from the latest Handwoven. The scarf is a pattern by Suzie Liles from Eugene, Oregon (my home town). The scarf is very soft and was a quick project to do before summer and life got in the way. Can't wait to wear it this winter.
