My journey into the world of weaving

I do love a fiber weekend!

The placemats have been washed and dried. I have snipped loose ends and I have trimmed the hem edges in preparation for hemming. That will probably have to wait till next weekend. And I will take pictures! I am quite pleased thus far.

Spinning is going smoothly – it seems I am learning more about tension and when to have it and when not to have it. Still looks a little kinky but definitely more uniform. Just a slub once in a while!

And then finally, I dressed the loom with the next set of placemats. These are the blues. It went well and all ends are accounted for! I will thread the heddles and sley the reed this week.

Also did a little yard work! We picked up lots of loose branches from the December storm. There’s still snow on the ground (in fact it’s snowing right now with the sun!) A great weekend.
