I have a rather large list of To Do's today. There are my usuals, Spin some yarn each day, for example. Here is todays progress shot.
I got the wheel all ready for the next couple of days spinning. This time, I took the batt of carded fiber, rolled it up so as to have parallel fibers and I began to draft it into this long roving. I then loaded it onto the distaff. I think it looks pretty! Check that off!
Then it was time to weave the mug rug for the day. With this one it makes 7 that I can hem up tonight and take to Carol tomorrow. Check that off!
Tomorrow we will be having a very unusual day at Tuesday Weavers. The next two items that I had to check off are related to the big day we have planned. I will give nothing away except to say that you don't want to miss the Loomy Tunes blog post tomorrow evening!
Hang out garbage bags to dry. What! That's right I said hang out garbage bags to dry. I have to take these tomorrow and they accidently got left out in the rain. Moisture is a big no no in this case so here they are drying out for me to take tomorrow. Check!
Along with all this I am conducting an experiment with different washing methods, to prevent the unwanted transfer of color from dark to light cotton warp, I posted about that last Friday on Teusday Weavers. Next Friday I will post my results, complete with pictures! It is taking days to do this wash testing, I am glad I have a few more!
I also need to hem and wash two blankets that I have finished and I may even be able to rethread the edges on my Kings Flower pattern, but that my be pushing it!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
