I have been busily spinning and weaving in the evenings. I had decided to weave a scarf a week….I am up to scarf #9. I think that is about on schedule…not that anyone is counting.
Scarf #4 is my favorite so far. It retains the liveliness of the original fleeces that I washed and prepped. The lincoln was spun off of mini combs. The corriedale was spun long draw from batts.
I am still seeking Log Cabin weave. I am not very interested, at this time, in precise weave structures. I just want to follow the weave where my spirit takes me. But, I have been fascinated with the light and shadow of a good log cabin weave. So far, I have not succeeded…but I did do this lovely asymetric plaid in scarf #8!
Scarf #6 and #7 are hard to tell apart. They each have a linen warp and a wild batt single weft. One is more blue and one is more lavender. Gideon preferred the purple.
