Obsession

img_0814 Hard to believe this Weave It throw has been in the works for too many years. One of those projects begun before I owned a floor loom, ( 30 some years ago), which seems a life time ago. In moving around my studio this year it required the emptying of the walk-in closet for painting. What should I come across but a bag full of Weave It squares and some skeins of matching yarn. The original goal was to make an Afghan or throw, but there were not enough squares In that bag. I hate unfinished projects langushing away in hidden places. So do I trash them or finish what I had begun years ago. The nice thing about Weave It looms is they are very portable and easy to work on in the evening while sitting by the TV.

So the obsessive work continued. Enough squares were made for a throw 13 squares by 11 squares. Each square is about 4 x 4 inches. A total of 143 squares, which were then crocheted together and all the ends sewn in.

Do you have unfinished projects tucked away?  Should they be resurrected and brought back to life? More incomplete projects remain in my closet, maybe another will be completed in the coming year.

  1. Good for you, for finishing! It makes me think of that insane coverlet I made from the zillion fabric yoyos–I couldn’t not finish it, but OY!

  2. Wow! The throw turned out great! I certainly have UFO’s in my closet, too. I bet we all do. Finishing one a year is a doable idea. 😊

  3. What dedication!
    The new multi-colored square looks intriguing – maybe there is another Weave It throw in your future! 🙂
