Fiber Musings

Random thoughts of a fiber enthusiast – mostly fiber related, sometimes coherent


I’ve been weaving little squares on my Hazel Rose Looms. Martin gave me Quilt Weaver’s Set in lace wood maple around Christmas. I’m using the pink kool aid dyed yarn that I spun up a while back. There’s a pretty little stack of them right now. When I’m finished, I’ll piece them into a TV/couch shawl for Martin. Good thing Martin’s not afraid to wear pink. But, then, who really cares what color it is when you are all snuggled up with your favorite book or the remote control?

I was disappointed to find out today that my Navajo Weaving lessons will need to be postponed. The next weekend that Hannelore and I both have free will be the end of July. Darn. I was so looking forward to it. I’m thinking that I will build myself a simple frame loom and try some tapestry weaving in the meantime. I want to weave, darn it.

I also have some ideas floating around for some card weaving samples, so there’s no shortage of things to do.

I don’t know why, but knitting just hasn’t been high on my list I want to do right now. I started spinning more silk/wool. This time, it’s a bombyx/merino from Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks that I purchased at Stitches West.
