Mowat Scarves Are Done ...

Tomorrow I have a Blue Ridge Spinners & Weavers Guild meeting. Our program will be dyeing self-striping sock yarn. The meeting will be held at Frog Eye Fiber Emporium. The shop owner is one of our guild members.

I finished both of my taran scarves. I felted one of them. I'm really happy with the way they turned out.
This is Sam our black Lab. He was so cute this morning I just had to take his picture. We also have a Dalmatian named Dottie.

There're Back ...

For the last couple of winters we're had visitors. Turkey Vultures! I went outside yesterday and happened to look up and there they were. They just sit there and stare. What do they want? Creepy.

Notice the trees have no leaves. That's because they are on the ground. We spent Saturday raking and will be doing the same this weekend.
Over the weekend I made a table top swift in my workshop. I saw one like this and decided to make it. The first picture shows it apart for easy storage and the second picture is the swift assembled. I made it from mahogany because I wanted it to have some weight to it. The pegs I purchased from the hardware store then painted them black. The lip on the peg should keep the hank from sliding off.I saw a very cute canine x-mas stocking and decided I had to make some. It was so easy. I used felt for the paw and pads and fleece for the cuff.
