Inspired by a similar piece on Flickr and after digging around the stash to see if I could come up with anything nice, I decided to christen the next project after elaborately painted Venetian masks.

This is my first extremely colourful weave and so far, I’m liking how it turns out. I don’t have four shuttles, just two, so I’ll have to make do with snipping and winding for every 16 (1.25″) rows. Still, I like my progress so far.

I might try this with different colour combinations – blue is awfully tempting at this point but I have just two hands and a loom so patience is warranted.

In the meantime, it’s back to the weave, some movies and the usual cooking. On a completely different note, I wish the rental agency would remodel our kitchen. It’s getting a bit tad crowded and I’d prefer bigger kitchen sinks – yes, plural is intentional.
