This overshot pattern is "Mary Ann Ostrander Pattern" and is from the book "A Handweaver's Pattern Book" by Marguerite Porter Davidson. I used 10/2 pearl cotton for the warp and the background weft. The pattern weft is 5/2 pearl cotton. The sett is 20 threads per inch.
13" x 36"

A good friend has triplet grandchildren, two girls and one boy. They will be a year old this Fall. I thought they needed to have some nice warm sweaters for Fall and Winter. I decided to knit an Aran pattern as I thought is would keep my interest. The pattern is from the book "60 Quick Baby Knits". I used 220 Superwash from Cascade Yarns.

Last week several of us gathered at a friends home neat Clatskanie, Oregon, to do a little yarn dyeing. We set up outdoors right next to field with several alpacas, who watched every thing we did. We did some painting on the yarn and also dipped yarn into dye pots. I came home with six skeins of yarn. Now to come up with some ideas on how I want to use them.

It has been forever since I have posted anything on my blog. Much has happened in the last seven months. It is time for me to get back in the swing of things.
In December I purchased a new to me 8 harness loom. It is a J-Made. I have been wanting to get a larger loom and and a friend had one to sell. Lucky me.
The first thing I wove was some plaid Christmas fabric. I will do something with it later on.
This is a table runner I finished weaving yesterday. The pattern is a variation of the M's and O's pattern. I wove it with 22/2 Cotolin.
