Weave a little, spin a little. Every day. Those would be two of my New Year's resolutions. Luckily I am surrounded by looms, wheels, and fibers most of the time. Pictured here is some bamboo and silk roving I dyed. I am spinning a little of it. Beginner that I am, I feel challenged by it. How can something so slippery be so grabby? Pre-drafting helps, plus all it shiny goodness make it worthwhile. I plan to ply what I get with a little lime green merino (I am spinning the stuff on the left). Maybe just enough for some fingerless mitts. Maybe for my Arizona daughter.
I found a new-to-me website that is full of fun patterns. Like this one, for a little black dress in Hempathy. That is one great yarn, and one I try to keep in stock. It is wonderful for knitting, crocheting and weaving.
Now that the Winter Holidays are a glowing memory, I am turning my attention to ordering yarns for Summer. I'd love some suggestions!
