Not weaving

It has been way too long since I've done any weaving, and way too long since I last posted. I have managed to thread up, weave some samples and tie on again. No photos though, it's for a (late) wedding present. Now I'm hoping to get it done by late September, when I next see the recipients.

The Assistant has been very helpful, started walking and climbing a couple of months ago. Which means there is even more opportunity for mischief, but also means he is happy exploring, so I can follow him around with some knitting or sewing and get a little bit done. Not so good for weaving, or anything that requires staying in one place though.

I started this last Christmas, with the intention of being done for Christmas this year:

I think I have made good progress. There is still plenty of backstitching, knots and beading to do, as well as turning it into an actual stocking, but there is also still plenty of time. (I'm glad to know my goals aren't always overly ambitious...)
