The End is Nigh…


IMG_1717Hah! I wasn’t sure this would ever happen, but it seems I have made a significant dent in the “ubiquitous blue.” I have a pang to see it come to an end, though lord knows I am ready to weave, knit, do tapestry, sew – whatever it may be – with any other colour! I warped up the Jane to do a simple point twill, using the blue as warp and some  pretty blue chunky mystery yarn as weft. (Found at a guild sell off, feels like wool, sure hope it is wool.) It is pretty enough, I think it will become a blanket, though I am going to have to make it in pieces given the size of my loom. That’s OK, it seems to be how I roll in this weaving game.

It has been an exceptionally nice week. Alison was in town and we went to the Sunshine Coast for a couple of days for some sister time. (Beautiful niece Chloe was here for a couple of days too, but she had to head back north a bit earlier.)

IMG_1703The family resemblance is striking isn’t it! (snort).

One of the highlights of the trip was a hike into Skookumchuk Narrows, four kilometres in the woods to a view-point where the sea rushes in quickly, especially at high tide. It was fantastic. And to cap the experience was watching a group of six sea lions playing in the surf. And it was clear that maybe they were fishing, but they were also really playing – breaching into the air, rolling and occasionally coming near. It is like watching crows and ravens catch the downdrafts – there is no question in my mind that the experience of joy transcends species.

    There is nothing quite like being out with nature. One never knows what will happen and who or what will appear out of the blue. The sea lions made my day, they were so happy! What’s up with that crazy person, thinking she could hide behind a leaf. It was a good time!

      I had fun too! Glad you liked it, oh crazy person hiding behind the leaf…

    I’m glad you guys had a good time. I’ve seen better pictures of the person behind the leaf tho’. Like the sea lions. Also like your weaving.. From here the colour is great.

      Thanks Mom! We really lucked out with the sea lion for sure. The weaving is progressing nicely. I really will kind of miss that blue yarn, all seven kilometres of it.
