Yes, on October 8, 2002, I embarked upon this blogging adventure. Â The first six months or so was actually a mailing list that I established for the 100-odd people who wanted to follow my travels through Southeast Asia…then I moved to Blogger, and then again to WordPress. Â It’s been nine years now and loving every minute of it!
Meanwhile, I have not been idle…all three blanks for the dark panels are now knitted and dyed. Â (One still needs to be rinsed out; the other two are dry and ready to unravel.) Â Here’s a pic of the first two blanks for the dark panels:
I’ve spread out part of one blank so you can see the knitted nature of it.
What’s next? Â Tomorrow I’m going to knit up the final two blanks (for the facings/collar), and start weaving up the final bright panel. Â Next week I will focus on getting the dark panels and the facings/collar panels woven. Â I’m hoping to have all the fabric woven by end of next weekend, following which they will need to be overdyed using fiber-reactive dyes. Â With luck I should have all the fabric ready by the next time I see Sharon!
