Project and rain

Rain has finally come to Maine.  After all of that snow melted so beautifully and slowly, I couldn’t imagine that we would end up in such a dry spell.  (It was lovely, though, as mud season was almost a non-event this year!).  Since early Sunday morning we have had pretty steady rain, and it’s back in the 40s again.  But we needed it.

When Sunday turned into a day of steady downpours, I took the time to ignore house cleaning and went upstairs and measured off a warp for some towels that I have been planning to weave since last summer.  Waffle weave towels, which are one of my favorites.  I am using cottolin, which I have never woven with before.  So I have hopes of some nice time on the loom in the coming weeks.  If I can get this warped over the weekend, maybe I can start on it sooner rather than later!
