Weaving is smooth

And it’s true. This is a sweet little piece. 13 inches wide and abour 45 inches in length so far. Plain weave and using all handspun for warp and weft. Not sure what this will be. A scarf? Maybe if there is enough I can make a little vest from it.

Inventoried what I have. I bought a bunch of different fiber in the summer. What I did today was match what I bought with a pattern. So I have at least 3 projects lined up. Probably all on my Tools.

I want to do another double weave blanket on the Norwood sometime.

Now to get back into the spinning groove too.

Next project well underway!

I am weaving more cloth, using my handspun again. This cloth will be grays and whites and a few ends of colors thrown in. Same dimensions as the last.

I have sleyed the reed and am halfway through with threading the heddles. I’ll finish threading tomorrow and next weekend I’ll beam the warp and hopefully start weaving! Again a plain weave using more handspun as weft.
