Let There Be Light!

I have the best husband, ever. I was mentioning I needed to find some kind of floor lamp to use when weaving, and look what he surprised me with.

It is full spectrum, and adjustable. I can aim it wherever needed. And it's a good thing, too. Now that I can "see", I've had to change my design once more. Seems I don't have enough of that honey colored gold, after all. But on the upside, I have 2 more skeins of the green. I've gone from plan B to plan C. 5" of green, 8" of gold, 34" of green, and then reverse. I believe I have enough yarn for that plan to work (fingers crossed). Do you see the piece of white paper, up to the left of the lamp? Wonder what it is? My super fancy, high tech treadle tracker. I should take it down. I memorized the treadling sequence almost immediately.

So how does all that weaving and set up compare to a knitting project? Still feels creative and productive I imagine!

I love it, Newly. Honestly, after 12 years of owning a yarn shop I am incredibly burnt out on knitting. I currently have zero desire to pick up my needles. But I am gung-ho for weaving. I'm sure I'll want to knit again eventually. Until then I will focus on discovering all that I can about this new passion. And the creative possibilities are endless.
