Blue Cloth Is Finally Under Way!

After much futzing and cajoling, the blue cloth is finally behaving well enough for now. When I set this deadline two weeks ago, I made sure that it was a little flexible. I would deliver cloth to the seamstress on Friday afternoon or Monday morning first thing. If I weave night and day, I can drive away at 6:00 AM on Monday with 8 ruanas ready to sew in time for this show. I'll weave shawls on Monday and Tuesday, pick up the ruanas on Wednesday and leave on Thursday. Perfect!

Here's my extra-long sample blanket.

And my winding station by the window, just crammed with blue thread.
