I have fringed and washed the scarves. They are drying right now. Then I’ll trim some of the ends off, give them a quick iron, shake ’em out, and they will be ready to give.
I was going to give one of them to my father. I thought of him a lot as I wove. He died on December 7th. So now this scarf is woven into my grief and I need to think of how I can still give this scarf to him.
I also need to return to my weaving and my spinning. That is my refuge. I have nothing on my loom right now but I have been very inspired by Peg in South Carolina about using my handspun not only as weft but warp.
So let me get through these next few weeks and then I’ll begin this next project. In the meantime, I can spin too.
