Is this thing on?

Whoops! Not entirely sure where the summer went. I remember the Tour de Fleece happened.

I remember knitting a pair of Tsocks.

I remember deciding to crochet a matching hat and cowl in an effort to use up some very elderly stash.

And I remember thinking that it'd be a great idea to warp up the loom with an experiment in plaid.

Because a six-colour plaid is obviously the perfect choice when one has never woven plaid before. Especially if one only has the one shuttle. Fortunately Weaving Friend had a few spares, and I rounded out the count with a trip to the Handweavers' Studio.

In other news, I have aspinnerated a new person and my spouse has finished an MSc. Term started this morning and my bookshelves are overflowing. Life as usual.
