The Small Big Thing

Just wanted to say hi .............and guess what I did today?


I sat down and wove about six and half inches, or seven repeats on my scarf!  It felt great to be holding shuttle again.   I haven't lost my technique thankfully . 


My progress today is shown here from the gold marker and up!   I went slow and was careful not to twist my leg or over reach the treadles.  Its a small, but big first start!

I'm six weeks post operative now and this time with my last hip replacement I was still hobbling around on crutches. Things have gone much better this time round.   I started weaving last time at about three months after surgery.  

I'll see how I feel tomorrow and not overdo  such things too much. I have been using my spinning wheel in the evenings so maybe that's helped?


I know someone else who is happy I'm back in the studio! Call grabbed a toy and waited patiently for the game of "you cover my eyes and throw it.... then I track it down, and bring it back ten seconds later."


Its a start!

Such good news! Calli certainly looks lovely in a recent clip I'd guess but that scarf is positively perfect. I love everything about it. I bet your looms are happy to see you too! :)

Yey, back to what's important. Continue with the speedy recovery (though it probably doesn't seem fast to you).
