Came home from Village Handweavers with this great book. The author takes twills on four-shafts and combines them form thousands of variations. The resulting fabrics are not only gorgeous but have a complexity that really interests me. I may not be quite there skill-wise yet but a girl can dream.

With knitting and spinning I considered myself a knitter and a spinner long before I was much more than a rank beginner. But with weaving even though I have been working at this for over a year, can't begin to think of myself as a "weaver."

Just got back from Solvang with the Pasadena Knitters. Fun time was had by all. Also in town that weekend was the fuzzy guy in the photo, the Prince Consort of Denmark. Very low-key, not tons of security and not a great speaker but you don't to get that close to a royal everyday!

Came home with some Dorset spinning done for a weaving project, some tencel for another weaving project and the most comfortable pair of shoes that I have ever owned. Also brought back a few extra pounds that I did not take with me.
