Shawls & Tomatillos
Hello, friends. The table napkins are off of the loom, so now I am ready to begin warping for bridal shawls. I am very eager to get started! The table napkins have yet to be hemmed, but I'm anxious to get my hands on this new warp chain. A warp chain of lovely yarn is a thing of beauty for me! (Maybe not for you, but that's okay).
Competing for my attention today is a garden that is overgrown with tomatillos. I made some salsa verde for us last night to go with our black bean burritos, but there is still a pile of tomatillos on the counter. They are husked and begging to be chopped up and put into canning jars.
So here is my lovely warp chain of 3/2 mercerized cotton. It is heavy -- there is enough yarn for 2 generously sized shawls, plus room for sampling. To bead or not to bead, that is the question...
Be well, Kate :)
