Today, I'm weaving on the second Smålandsväv runner and run out of handspun woolen weft.

So I got the roll of wool roving I got from Upper Canada Village two summers ago out and spun a full wheel bobbin. I weave it single so no need to ply. We all know about cat's interest for wool do we?

A new project, huck lace linen towels taken from May/June 2003 Handwoven magazine.

But I find them too thin so they'll be woven as table runners.

Overshot & fur cushions

I brought back home my overshot class sample woven at our weaving guild. It will be a good match for this old fur coat I kept aside to make cushions.

I started by taking apart the coat.

And was surprised to find out that fur coats are in fact made out of multiple small pieces.

I am very pleased with the results :-)
