Gearing Up

It's time to get serious about production for the fall shows after a very welcome month visiting family. In spring we had dye days and I painted several warps and wefts. So now I'm trying to weave them off.  The warp and weft is bamboo. This warp is greens. What looks like teal is really a darker green. 
Blues, lots of blues are what this warp is. It's not bright but more perfect for blue jeans. 
I've got 3 more bamboo warps to go. Winding the warps and wefts is fairly easy, just takes time. Then it's back to cotton. However, with several interruptions planned for this week, not a lot of weaving will happen but I'll see how much I can get done. 
Winding the skeins onto my big Strauch ball winder is taking quite awhile. Seems like those threads tangle more than I'd like. So there's a lot of work before I get to the loom. It's a good thing my cats don't seem phased by the least not today! 
Until next week, keep weaving!!
