My journey into the world of weaving

Back to the fiber

I am half way done with the second scarf. It is all Deerfield Valley alpaca silk, chestnut color. The weave is a broken twill.


I think it’s going to be a very soft scarf! And I like the alpaca silk fiber.

I am still spinning away! There’s volume if not beauty! Here are my two most recent skeins. The dark is what came with the Louet spinning wheel; the colored is merino corriedale combo.


And finally, I am preparing the next project which is using up a lot of my stash. I am using a Handwoven pattern for 4 handtowels to be woven in a waffle weave. I am not sure at all how these will come out but they’ll be fun!

New project – scarves

I warped, beamed, threaded, and sleyed the new warp yesterday! It is a silk alpaca combination. All went very smoothly. I delighted in the soft silkiness of this fiber.

The weft is my handspun, “chocolate covered raspberries” BFL. The pattern will be a broken twill.

This weaving should be fun!
