“Almost” Weaving

Back from the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Festival. My classes were so much fun! I got to hang out with Gale Evans of Gale’s Art and watch the shoppers drool over her beautiful rovings. In the next booth was Red Fish Dyeworks. They had dyed silk yarns in almost every color of the rainbow. Truly awesome colors! I bought some blue and ordered a particular color of gold to be shipped to me in a few weeks for a project I’m in the process of designing. I had my beautiful merino/silk singles with me to show my spinning class and took them to the booth. I bought a purple silk thread to use as warp to my singles weft for a scarf.

Yesterday I actually wound the thread into a ball with the ball winder. I will have to double the thread for warp, but there is plenty to do that. Now I am ready to warp! Since this will be a skinny scarf, the warping shouldn’t take long and then I can begin weaving. This is the closest I have been to a weaving project in eight months and I am really excited. I will keep you posted on the progress/outcome.
