You might have seen that I bought quite a bit of yarn for weaving when I was at Maggie Casey's shop a couple of weeks ago.
Here's what I bought: a little Merino/silk, a little Harrisville Shetland, and some alpaca.
What am I going to do with all of that yarn? I'm going to weave scarves until I feel really comfortable on the two looms I have. Everyone needs a scarf, right? I want my woven scarves to be like zucchini in high summer, I'll have so many that I'll be sneaking them into people's bags and leaving them on porches.
Before I start much spinning for weaving I need to get weaving for weaving stuck in my head, basic weaving - rigid heddle and maybe a little twill. This plan feels good, much better than when I was going to try to figure out weaving and spinning for weaving at the same time.
You did notice that I got multiple colors of all of the yarns didn't you? I'm not one for solids and I'm curious about the interaction of color in weaving. I'll do a little playing with color as I scarf my way through fall and winter.
What's up first? Something for me in my signature Willy Wonka colors, purple and lime. A little Harrisville Shetland on my Cricket. I want to do something stripey with the colors, easy and fun.
