And I like it that way!
I finished the rayon slub scarves – they shrank more than I thought. So the short one is about 50 inches and the longer one is 63 inches. Both about 6.5 inches wide. I machine washed and then air dried. When dried, they felt stiff and fairly unappealing as scarves go. But a quick strong shake and they realized their soft shimmer once more.
I am spinning right along. I have finished a second skein of gray and white plied together. I think the improvement is visible. I definitely do better if I don’t think about peddling and drafting at the same time but if I just sort of let it flow, the outcome is the best. I’m definitely getting hooked on this.
My next weaving project is a set of placemats – 5 to be exact. The fiber is rayon cotton linen. I am doing a huck pattern, something adapted out of Handwoven which was a scarf.
I had a plan for the stripes and for the most part I succeeded except when I ran out of the lilac colored fiber. It was a linen. I filled in with something else – just about 6 ends in all.
