Today is my 45th birthday!!! I’m half way through what has been the best decade of my life (so far).

And my birthday present to myself?

Starting tonight through Sunday night, the only time I will be out of my studio is to sleep, eat and take the occasional potty break.

I had my Weaver’s Swap project all designed, the yarn chosen and everything ready to begin measuring the warp tonight. Then, when I woke up this morning, something odd hit me. Why were two same-sized balls of yarn wildly different in yardage? So I ran downstairs and looked at them again. Well, well… They aren’t the same weight of yarn. And the difference is enough to not make this project work.

So, tonight, I’ll be back to digging through yarn and coming up with what I want to weave because I still want to weave this particular design – simple, sturdy and interesting to look at. It’s a good thing I love playing with yarn!

Before I go to bead, I will have the warp all ready to put onto the loom so I can weave it off tomorrow.
