The Suspense...

Well, the throw is woven/weaved and off the loom, but I'm a day behind posting pictures and these are images I want to remember.












Little soldiers. There are four rows of "holders" for the warp yarn. Raising different combinations of the harnesses raises different yarns all the way across to create the patterning as you take the weft yarn back and forth.

Beautiful images. How satisfying it must be to raise your sheep, spin your yarn and weave it into something beautiful.

I don't get it at all but I can't wait to see the throw!

Congratulations! Just beautiful.
I'm in awe.
Now you'll be able to sit cuddled up with Punkin any time you want.
I'm sure she's smiling.
Another reason to wish for cooler weather...

I love the photos! You've made the process look so easy but if I was doing it, it would be a huge, huge mess!! :-)

I hope your week is going well!

The Punkin throw is beautiful. I'd think he'd approve.

Such gorgeous images! Even if you never finished it, it would look so impressive just staying on the loom! But finish it you will, and it will turn into one big hug from Punkin'!

Impressive pictures from beginning to end. What a beautiful pattern you have chosen. It goes so nicely with the texture of the yarn, and it so shows off your spinning talent. This is certainly a loving tribute to Punkin.
Do you have to block it now?

Hi, I found your blog through the wonderful C of The Kitchen's Garden. You seem to have a wonderful and idyllic lifestyle. I love sheep and lambs and only wish I had room for a few on my small patch of earth.
