Ready to Weave!

The mixed fine wool warp is now threaded, sleyed, and lashed onto the cloth apron. All ready to start weaving...

Ready, that is, if it weren't for a flurry of orders for zip bags (birthday gift for a sister-in-law who is a knitter, and wants a knitting tool bag) and mobile phone pouches (Christmas gift for my sister who is a serious iPhoneographer, and wants her iPhone to be quickly reachable at all times in case a photographic opportunity presents itself).

In addition to the fiber-related distractions, we have a trip to Los Angeles area coming up. My wonderful father-in-law passed away a few weeks ago, and events associated with his passing, plus Thanksgiving at one of DH's brothers' homes, have already necessitated a couple of trips south. On Saturday, the official religious service and a celebration of life will be held in San Pedro, and that's another 3 days away from the studio. However, he was the best in-law anybody could hope for, almost the father I never had, so the time away is not regretted in any way.

Tomorrow I will post my favorite photo of my father-in-law, taken last year by DH when the two of them went on a cruise of coastal Norway. And photos of the gifts I've been working on.

Sorry for your loss. Especially hard at holiday time.
