Good intentions

I had such good intentions... to add lots of blog posts this summer.  You would think our carefree summer living on our 36ft sailboat would make for lots of free time, but with visitors nod visiting and the stuff that has to be done in our little living spac to keep it live able... Time gets away. So, here we are with about 10 days to go befor we head South following the lead of the Canaduan geese.

I did weave on my little 15" Cricket rigid heddle loom and got a bit of drop spindle cotton spinning done.  I knit a triangular shawl/scarf with some wonderful Copper Cirgi yarn in the Frayed Knot (our local Savannah yarn store) colorways... And am covering our. Cockpit cushions with Sunbrella fabric.  So there's quite a but of fiber related activity going on floatin on our boat!!!

The five scarf-like fabrics I wove follow.  I am limited to about 3 yards of warp because that is how far I can stretch to the peg attached by our companionway.  But some good things have happened due to this limitation.  The lengths are great for scarves and because the Cricket warps in about an hour, it is fun to do a variety of textures and combinations in each warp.
