I Need Some Focus

Here it is a snow day and I have so many things rolling around in my brain that I don't know what to start on first. Of course, a nasty headcold might be adding to my befuddled feelings. Or it may be that I'm enjoying the view from my kitchen window. I think I need to take some time to figure out what projects I want to work on first and do a little prioritizing. Don't think I'm going to be a one project at a time person, but I was thinking more like one weaving, one spinning, one dyeing, one carding, oh and you really do need several knitting projects!

Well, before I get to that, look at the pretty yarn from one of Linda Diak's batts. The picture doesn't do it justice - since the little highlights of golden yellow just won't show up.

On another subject, I have a tablecloth that I love. I think it's huck, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? I was thinking of a runner and 4 place mats. Now that the family is downsizing, I need some new placemats (you know, not stained)

Gotta go straighten up my office and do some school work. Doesn't hurt that I can keep my eye on the front walk. I'm waiting for UPS to bring my Thunderbird order. Hmm, I guess I'm not really serious about focusing, am I?


  1. CHARLEEN! Pick something, anything, and work on it. Don't waste your lovely snow day!!
    How's that for nagging....;-)

  2. It looks like some variation of huck. Do you have the XRX book on huck? I made baby blankets in pearl cotton (see the gallery on my blog) with huck diamonds. You'd need 8H for diamonds, but only 4 for squares. Huck is really fun to weave.

  3. Lovely batt - I just spun the same color! The yellow really makes it. Hope you enjoyed your snow day!

  4. Well, how do you like that? I do have the Huck book, Carolyn. Thanks for reminding me.
    I enjoyed my snow day, even though I didn't accomplish much.
