June is getting along now, but so is the scarf I decided to weave for this month:
See? Loom's all set up. Set up strangely, because I didn't expect to run out of yarn quite so soon after the middle part, and also I put the heddle thingy in backwards, but set up.
I really need to memorize the technical names for the loom's parts, don't I.
As I mentioned, this scarf is going to be woven with handspun yarn, so I kind of had to get to the plying before I could go any further.
I noticed something special about this stuff right away. You?
What this shot has got that the others don't is the giveaway.
Hardly any barberpole! I actually spun the singles so closely to each other, they mostly match up. I canNOT believe it. This bodes well, I think.
And looks so pretty on the shuttle thingy.
... almost as pretty as it does on the loom:
ahhh, June scarf: started. Can't tell you what a relief that is.
Go have a great weekend (and wish me luck for progress on this thing) and I'll see you here again on Monday!
