1. I finished my FIRST set of hand woven tea towels. With help, I cut them off a large floor loom and learned the correct way to hem them.
3.. I warped my FIRST loom! This ten inch Cricket Loom is designed for weaving scarves, mostly. My friend walked me through the process while she was warping a second one.
4. For the FIRST time I visited my friend's studio for the group knitting/spinning/weaving afternoon. I had been to a pre-opening event but hadn't been in since it has opened. Threadbender Textiles is a store/studio which teaches weaving to special needs young adults. They are learning a skill and then have a venue for selling their creations. I'm sure I'll be back. Eleanor tried a bit of spinning, too.
5. No photo for this, but I made a vegetable lentil soup with this year's FIRST potatoes from the garden. It contained carrots, kale, basil, parsley and rosemary from my garden, too.
