Yesterday, my man and I went to Montreal for a Hungarian party at a workshop that brought together Hungarian dancers and musicians from all over North America and teachers and musicians from Transylvania.
We got there early, and enjoyed listening to music while chatting, knitting (all my knitting friends were there!) and drinking my favourite winter drink, a sarlotka (zubrowka vodka and old style apple juice). (I have some pictures, but did not ask anyone if I could post them, so they're only on my facebook, where only my friends can see them). So you'll have to take my word that it was a wonderful day! It was so great to see everybody, hear live Hungarian music again and dance a bit!
On the 2 hours-long trip there, my man reminded me that I should really get going with my weaving, if I want to be able to move my loom at the end of May. It's been warped for about a year now, and I had only about 34 inches woven on it. I got distracted by my several knitting project over the past few months, but I really have to weave more!

We calculated with the 15 yards I warped, I need to weave at least 5 inches every day until the move to make sure we can dismantle the loom on time. So I started tonight, finishing my first 36'' long piece, and starting a 2nd one. I had forgotten how physical weaving could be, after a few minutes, I had to take my sweater off, I was so hot. That should be a good incentive to sit at my loom more often!
