My journey into the world of weaving


Leave a comment

If only to just post in November before the month ends….

I have done some spinning, not too much weaving. I don’t know where the days go! but I am hoping for cozy winter weekends spent at my wheel or loom.
I do have the Louet back (my sister and I share this wheel). I would like to try spinning the raw fleece on that. What happens if I spin one bobbin on the Ashford and the other on the Louet and then ply on the Louet? I guess I’ll try it!
One observation: I have begun wearing scarves and enjoying wearing scarves. Especially mine. But. Many of mine I gave away! So. That’s next on the project boards: to spin a couple for me.

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?
