As I sit here waiting for the sun to get just a bit brighter so I can fire up these knitting needles, I thought I would share a few things from my neck of the woods - totally unrelated to names. This is the weaving I did for my community auction. I had the idea in my mind to use this one to practice different ideas (this has a bit of copper wire woven into it, for example) and then do another one to actually offer in the auction. It turned out the idea to do two weavings in several days with a house full of sick people was completely unrealistic -- I am no stranger to this total lack of realistic foresight -- so this is the one I'm offering! The auction has many other handmade items, including some beautiful wool-felted toys and a berber rug. And we will ship. The proceeds go to our local Waldorf school, so we may continue to grow up through the grades and keep offering this beautiful education to children from all walks of life.
