Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

The gales of November are upon us

[queue up Gordon Lightfoot and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"!]

We've lost power twice in three days so far, due to high winds. So if this space doesn't get updated, I'm probably sitting in front of the soapsone stove tatting or knitting!

Boy, do I have a lot of projects in the "ongoing" state!

Weaving on both of my looms, the floor loom (a LeClerc Artisat) and the tapestry loom (a Schacht Spindle loom).

Knitting on two frames (the "endless" belt, as in "this project is endless!", and the small rug out of t-shirt rags).

Knitting on needles:
Purple lace-experiment scarf (flat on two needles)
Socks (two pairs, both in the round on two needles, "double knitting" a la Beverly Royce)
A miser's purse (in the round on needles, sewing needles I bought from Havel's Sewing and made into knitting needles)

Tatting, still the purple/blue variegated star, which I could probably finish today.

And with all that, I still need to make two ornaments for exchanges!

Meanwhile, if you'd like to watch waves on the Great Lakes while remaining warm, cozy, and dry, I recommend the Great Lakes Environmental Research lab's webcams:
