I’m joining up with Ginny on her “yarn along“. I love to knit and love to read – but since I haven’t figured out how to do both at the same time – I also love Audible. And I have been listening to Riptide by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.
I succumbed to the temptation of weaving – I bought a Kromski Harp rigid heddle loom. It is a beautiful piece of equipment. The first warp I ran with was kitchen cotton and it was a little thick for the 10 dent heddle. The yarn didn’t flow as smoothly through the heddle as would be liked.
I ran 8″ of warp and then wove these three items on the same warp, one washcloth and a two towel size.
The warp was solid white and the weft was a multi-colored ~ green, blue, yellow and white. On this last one I tried a couple rows of leno, it give interest to the towel.
So far, my impressions are that the setup takes a little while but the weaving goes pretty fast. I wove these items in an evening.
I posted a couple of these pictures on my other blog last week, but wanted to describe it in a little more detail here.
So what are you knitting / crocheting / spinning / reading / listening to?
