Maybe by Next Christmas?


Really?  some people don’t like the internet? or at least the technology that it entails.  Ah, but what a joy this last month.  I have heard from several people since I wrote about these potholders, including the lovely Gretchen Mueller whose potholder was the impetus for this whole project.

There was a lot of thinking through to be done. What yarn?  Erica did not say anything about size when I posted to her. I thought 5/2 was used and believed I had some, but no,  on inspection, it was 10/2.  But I did have a stash of varying amounts of 8/2.  Maybe a double strand would work.  In fact Gretchen used a 8/4 carpet warp.  Sett,  go with experience, so I adapted the numbers Erica gave me.   Now how to get it on the beam.  No way was I going to put the draft from Photoshop into a weave draft.  I printed out the PS design and marked it in 7 card sequences for each inch for beaming with my warping wheel, back to front.  If you think I came to this as quickly as I wrote it… how I wish!

See previous post for what it looks like today, still a lot of progress to me made before I start thinking about all the problems I should have already solved!
