life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
MacKenzie Speaks: Rolling in the Warp!
Hi. I’m MacKenzie.
This week the Mother of Cats put all of her knitting away so she could start working on a NEW CAT TOY for me and Yellow Boy. Actually, Yellow Boy is afraid of it, so this new cat toy is all for me.
In the late afternoons after the thunder stops the Mother of Cats and I get to go outside to water and chase bugs. Maybe she isn’t so bad after all, even though she seems to have a problem sharing her toys.
I’m such a good boy.
Can I have some cookies now?
Notes from the Mother of Cats: I received a commission to make these cotton dish towels a few weeks ago, so after I finished up with the major yard work I pulled out the loom and got her dressed again. Gosh, I have missed weaving. Anyone want a dish towel? Is it too soon to put on a Christmas colored warp?
Knit on, my friends, unless of course you are weaving this week. 🙂
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

MacKenzie: You’re looking lovely this week. Not all toys are for cats. I know that’s hard to believe. I have to tell Myles that when he tries to steal my knitting.
The weaving looks fantastic! I love the colors. They’re really perfect together. Oh, it’s never too early to work on Christmas projects:)
MacKenzie: I’m just saying, she should SHARE her toys. Is that too much to ask? Besides, it’s just yarns…. it’s not like I’m trying to take her garter snake or anything like that…
Thank you for the weaving compliment. My cousin helped select those colors (She had me put the grape color in), and they are really nice.
It’s so neat to learn about weaving and what it entails. I’m glad you’re having fun.
It is fun. I can’t wait to get back at it this week. 😀
Love the colors! You are very talented!
I’m trying to get better with color. I try to notice what colors are involved when I see something I like. I should take pictures and start a color journal.
That’s a great idea. My human’s sister is a quilter and she keeps a similar journal.
Lovely loom pictures – shows how you do it.
I decided to not share all of the little details… it took me two hours to thread the little heddles, but since MacKenzie slept through that part it doesn’t count, right? It is a lovely loom, isn’t it. I am glad to have it back out in use.
If you still have an extra dishcloth, I will definitely buy it! Poor McKenzie, you sure can give some evil stares!. Maybe, suggest a new catnip toy to Mother!
I will have to see if there is enough warp for the fifth towel. It could be that it will be a shortie…
