Too soon to think about cold winter mornings?
Change is definitely in the air – but since tomorrow’s forecast is for temperatures in the upper 70’s and low 80’s, I’m not expecting a mad rush for my handspun hand-knit hats.
However, – since people are already starting to choose colors, I plan to bring more of a selection along with me to Farmer’s Market tomorrow.
Also new for the booth – a bulky-weight merino/cashmere handspun yarn.
And, – in response to requests for “narrow”- some recent weaving experiments. Including a few with hems instead of fringe.
(if I have time to “do” photos, I’ll add something here)
I have more to say about the controversy surrounding this issue of hems vs. fringe. (Hey! – this is important – when’s the last time you tried to untangle a snarly mess at the ends of your scarf, tie, blanket or shawl?)
But for now I’ll just say – I’m taking a closer look at what it is I usually do, when, and why; asking myself whether doing something different is both possible and worthwhile; and wondering how that difference might alter the usefulness (and perception) of a particular thing.
Like I said – change is in the air.
Don’t you just love August in Vermont?
