Some progress, and a confession or two...


I am making progress on the duck, but oh, so slowly! I can't help but think that I could be progressing at a much more reasonable speed on a larger tapestry. Or do 'reasonable speed' and tapestry in the same sentence constitute an oxymoron? Some kind of moron, I'm thinking!

As I weave this little duck, which is not yet 4" tall, I have to confess to myself that I do much prefer to work at a larger scale. I believe if I had woven this same duck to be 3 times as large, I would have been done with it by now. Small is slow, for me.

I have made a bit more progress on the painting for the Haiti exhibit, too, but not much, as most of my studio time has been at the loom. I will get back to the easel when I reach my weaving goal for the week.

However... I am headed to the TV for a bit this afternoon and evening. While I watch the Olympics, I am finishing up a knit baby sweater, then I hope to actually knit myself something! I'd love to do an 'everyday' sweater, but these socks are also calling my name. I love the Olympics, for knitting! I will also be doing some Olympic scale laundry while in the basement at the TV. The commercials are perfect for catching up on laundry. Well, I'm off to see what Apolo Ohno is up to! (And to scrounge through my yarn stash.)

Well, it may take a while, but I am certain it will be exquisite when you are finished!
