The silence in the blog has not been caused by a lack of activities. There has been a lot going on. Leila and Frank wove their blue and red Christmas blankets and they have gone back to the UK to regular life. I feel sorry for them without having Hiro to cook for them every day.
The warp was dyed with madder and the weft with indigo. A regular herringbone. I ordered the wool from Nancy Zeller in New Hampshire. 10% silk blend gives it a slight lustre. We warped four blankets. I just finished up the third blanket. I used madder with a slightly higher pH for a slight contrast in the weft.
