  1. Wow...a very good weaving year...

  2. LOVE all the, you are very productive, and talented. Would you share what you use to make your baby blankets?

  3. Wonderful weavings, I will come like 'green' with envy.

  4. Lovely portfolio! It seems a bit mean to pick favourites out of such a wonderful selection, but I do have a sneaky soft spot for the vegetable bibs.

  5. Your weaving always looks so clean and crisp.... no matter what the project or texture!

    I thought this idea of recording a years worth of weaving so neat, I stole your idea! Maybe we can start something??

    Hugs, Susan

  6. Thank you for all the wonderful comments!

    Hilary, I wove both baby blankets with pearle cotton - used 5/2 grist

    Cally, the vegetable bibs were a lot of fun to weave

    Susan, thank you for the compliment! This was the second year I did a review of what I had woven - helps me to clear the slate and begin again. Maybe we should make this an annual January blog item, are you game?

  7. Wow!! It almost made me dizzy to see how much you have done. All so fresh and colorful. It is inspiring to see these reviews of things woven. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Gorgeous!! It's great being reminded of what a fab weaver you are! I love your choice and use of colour....looking forward to seeing more great weaving this year :)

  9. As I scrolled through I realized that I liked each one best!
