As it has been almost 20 years since our plucky heroine did any tablet weaving, an evening workshop last night was an excellent thorough review, and now am all excited about getting back to turning string into Useful Things... this simple pattern would be excellent for either a belt or a bag strap, as both sides look pretty...
The weather here remains unrelentingly clear, and the combination of sunglasses and many layers of wool provide some small comfort. Crawled out of bed this morning to find window frost - fortunately on the outside. While it is cold inside Acorn Cottage, it isn't cold enough for the ice to form inside the house... Last night girl turned the rest of the display beans into hot packs, and heated them in the microwave; placed all round the bed underneath two down puffs made a cozy relaxing nest to ease into dreamland and uncurl from the cold.
Fingers crossed that we will get back to some of my beloved grey misty wintertime soon - I was 'splaining to a lady at the bus stop yesterday who was baffled by how it could be sunshiney and so gorram cold at the same time, that when it is overcast or cloudy that the clouds were like a blanket that holds the warmth closer to the ground. (I first noticed this when I lived in Idahell, that the days when it was snowing were a LOT warmer than the days when the sun was shining)
