spinning my wheels
too many unfinished projects on the go
the woven shibori had to be cut in half in order for it to fit on the pipe and it is still too long to fit in the dye pot
twisting the fringe on the first scarf, I usually finish the entire warp length before cutting anything off the loom but I wanted to see what this looked like before continuing
several different spinning projects under way
cotton on my favorite little Turkish spindle kuchulu from Jenkins
hemp on a Bosworth spindle
and llama on my wheel, it feels light and soft but had too much guard hair so will be scratchy to wear
so what am I doing? Anastasia wrote in her blog about making pom poms
they looked like something my granddaughters might like and they could be made with thrums
I bought a package with the 2 smallest gizmos, and eagerly started winding. It took 2 or 3 false starts before I decided to read the instructions!! More yarn is needed than I anticipated (that’s good, it will use up more thrums).
They still aren’t as round and full as the picture on the package. Maybe the larger size will look better?
Not happy, needs more testing, wasting too much time.
Maybe the girls will like it.
