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!

Weaving in the new home

I am beginning my first project in the new home! Only took 8 months! but I had been thinking about this one for a bit.

I am very rusty. I had to sit and think about the whole process of dressing the loom but I think I am getting it now. Project is beaming fairly smoothly – I’ll get that done today I am sure.

I need to do an errand but I’ll be back to work on this and maybe watch the Olympics at the same time!

Thanks for reading – it’s good to be back.

Tencel scarf off the loom!

It only took 6 months or so but I took the scarf off of the loom today. I still need to finish it: fringe and wash. Then I’ll take pictures!

I am moving in the next few weeks so I won’t be starting a new project until I am in my new home.

I am looking forward to participating with NOBO Guild again in 2016.

Thanks to anyone still reading! I want to get back into blogging about my weaving and spinning. I think it keeps me honest!
