I am over halfway done on this blanket, and though I know that it can't be true, it seems to be weaving up faster than the original pattern! It is just an illusion I know, but it sure seems like it.
One of the things I have been working on last month and now this one too, is to get all my looms loaded. Now that the Cambridge rug loom is loaded, (see a previous Farmstead Studio blog post for that.) I have moved back to the main Studio, and I am determined to get the last 2 looms loaded by next week.
I finally finished spinning the colorful Polwarth wool that my Daughter had gotten me for my Birthday in December. I was hoping that all my careful planning would keep the colors from barber poling too much in the final yarn, but happily that wasn't the case. I am delighted with the what I am seeing in the plied yarn. I just started plying it last night, and I will take my time with it, I do most of my spinning and plying in the evening, or in odd moments during the day. I am not a production Spinner by any means! :)
I hope you don't get tired of seeing my Bread cloths and Baby blankets, but that is a lot of what I do! If they don't sell, they sure make wonderful presents!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
