New Wheel!

newwheelI went to the Fiber Revival today and one of the first things I did was buy this!

It’s a Hitchhiker wheel from The Merlin Tree

I am so excited to have it and look forward to vacationing with it in a few weeks. So much easier than bundling up the Ashford Traditional into the car!

And yes I bought some fiber. Some roving from Mulberry March Designs and Mad Color Fiber Arts.

So much fun! Also tried my hand at an electric spinner – interesting!

More on new project

This is a project to use up some of my stash. The warp is bamboo (left over from the baby blanket) and the weft will be alpaca and camel mixes! I’m taking on a plain weave. This was challenge enough!

I have threaded the heddles…it took a moment of consideration. I am so rusty! But it’s becoming smoother and smoother. Next is sleying the reed. I’ll update. This feels good!
