|Camping in the Northwoods|
What you don't see are the kayaks we rented to tool around the lakes. It was a lot of fun, but the words "canoe area" are a big clue to which is the preferred mode of transport in these parts. Though we enjoyed skimming over the water, and the kayaks were light enough to carry on a short portage, climbing out of the things to get onto shore was awful. I know the people on YouTube make it look easy, but trust me, it's not. I couldn't get out of the thing without getting soaked so we had to limit ourselves to one lake at a time and no portages.
|Newly edged towels in need of wet finishing.|
I added the subtitle because I did a lot of reading at the campsite, in particular Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss. I am very interested in spirituality and I find her books filled with things to think about. I love to think, as it keeps me busy while I'm doing things like edging towels. All this thinking and not paying attention helps me discover new mistakes!
|What a yucky hem!|
|A nicer rolled edge.|
The other problem I see is that my rolled edge is kind of heavy. I wove five rows of plain weave on each side of the pattern to make this edge. Next time, I will weave only three. I think this will allow me to make a finer edge. I won't be sure if the five row or three row edge is the mistake until I make and test my next set! So stay tuned for future tips on weaving and the path of enlightenment.
