Where the Twain Meet

I’m so happy with my second attempt at a rattle for my new little grand-nephew.

This little tweeter is just 3″ high. I used 2 strands of 8/2 cotton and size 1 knitting needles. It may be hard for the baby to hold for a while ‘cuz the toy is very chubby, but he’s so cute that I don’t care. I made some modifications to Rebecca Danger’s free pattern for this one.

A show last weekend, a show this weekend — it’s been hard to spend time at the loom. But today I was able to finish the weaving of AA’s baby wrap. I’ve just cut the two wraps off the loom, and here you can see where the chambray and melon wefts meet. I really like that melon!

Now I have to sew a straight line at each raw edge, cut the wraps apart, and hem them. Then inspect for anything that needs to be fixed before I toss them in the washer and dryer. When they come out they’ll get a good pressing and then a label. JM & AA will have their wraps before Christmas!
