I’ll admit it. I can’t commit to just one project, or even one craft, at a time. Even within the same week or day.
As you can tell from the posts so far, I hop around from craft to craft and project to project. And, that’s only what I’ve chosen to blog about. I’ll start something, and will be making progress, and then…. BAM…. Bright, shiny new project must be started NOW!! So, the basement has various projects partly done and stashed in all sorts of nooks and crannies. Someday I might get brave and document this on the blog. But for now, I’ll explain how this played out over the last couple of days.
Exhibit A. I am almost done with my sorbetto. I’m a little frustrated with the fit, as noted here. But seriously, I need to get a grip. All that needs to be done is to inset the cap sleeves and hem the bottom.

Anyway, I picked up this kit at the Midwest Folk and Fiber Fair from the Weaver’s Loft. The warp is ivory, and the weft will be this:
Weaving forces projects monogamy in a way that knitting doesn’t – since you can only have on project on the loom at a time. But you know what this means???? I’m wondering if I need another loom……
