While I haven’t finished finishing my first weaving…. I have done a second piece of cloth, and this time instead of over several weeks I did it in one day. Even shmoo was impressed about how fast it went this time.

I used the handspun I had done up from a merino silk blend I got at MSW last year from the Cloverleaf Farms booth. The warp was a simple two ply and the weft a chain/navajo ply. I had done up two bats and was just experimenting with plying when I did them and thought the minor difference would be neat for weaving when I went to rake the stash for weaving yarns.

I love it. I can decide if I want to make a small project bag/purse out of it or something else, but in the mean time, I’ll just keep petting and admiring it. :)

    There’s plenty of time between now and Christmas for you to break the back of the gift list with scarves.

    It’s a lovely colour, like a lagoon green. The sea we get round here is generally grey, matching the rainy sky.

    It’s beautiful!!!!! St.George Island colors….pet all you want but when you make something form it …I want it!!!!
    Did you ever do anything with the yard I gave you (the green and cream) or are you just going to let it sit there looking pretty and petting it?

    So there were advantages to having the power be out today,yes?
