My journey into the world of weaving

Spinning away!

I have finished the singles on this particular roving and am now plying.

Once done, then I will begin to spin the romney fleece in the raw! I bought this fleece with my cousin Donna – we split it – from the Commonground Fair. She had actually been looking at white fleeces and then this one caught my eye – “lavender tint” it said on the bag! It was beautiful and fairly clean. Perfect to spin in the raw as we had just seen some spinners doing at the Fair.

So I will begin this in the next few days! Donna, have you started spinning yours yet?

Labor Day weaving and spinning

I have done a fair amount of spinning this weekend, getting to know my wheel again, all the quirks of it.

I am almost done with the second dish towel. This pattern was easy – a lot of the weft is in natural with color highlights. I am sure to get a third out of this warp, not so sure about a fourth but time will tell.

I truly cannot believe it is September. The summer flew by – time pushes us right into winter before we know it.

September is going to fly by too. My husband’s stone will be set on Sept. 14th and then I am off to the Commonground Fair for the whole weekend of September 19-21!

I am finding my rhythm again. It’s a little sporadic still but beginning to feel as it should!

And the best part is, I finally caught up with my broken ends! Two are very close together so it looks a little bunchy right now but I’m betting it will be just fine!
