First Weaving in my New Home

I don’t have the energy to write much. I feel like I have been running a marathon.

Ah, the thrill of victory…..
The dimensions before washing—44.5″ x 72″. I wove some extra which I planned to trim off when I hemmed the blanket after washing and drying in the machine. I usually get about 10″ shrinkage in the length.

Yes, it is true, bamboo/cashmere washes nicely on gentle in the machine and dries in the dryer on low. It is really quite miraculous. I’ll have a picture for you tomorrow before I race off to FedEx to ship before noon, so it will arrive on the East Coast on Monday.
