This afternoon saw the last of the Christmas book tokens traded in for assorted reading matter. Then we had a cup of tea at the café upstairs where we were kept from plummeting onto the books below by this diamond mesh. I was really intrigued by the patterns in the corner where the two layers at different angles appear to overlap.
Back at home, I finished the pink and orange warp and cut it off the loom, whereupon it looked like this:
I washed it and then started fulling it in little 10 minute bursts of drying, but had to stop when Phoebus came home with great clumps of fur hanging off him and streaks of blood on his white bits. Total wound tally has so far reached 5: one scratch over left eye, one scratch over right eye, bite to the top of the head, ripped claw on back foot and baldy patch on his chest (ah, so that’s where the fur clumps came from). There may be more injuries that we haven’t found yet, but these were the most obvious. He is now cleaned up and sleeping it off. Luckily I remembered to switch the dryer off, or I’d be biting bits out of him myself. I’ll assess the state of fulling in the morning and see whether any more is required.
