Yesterday, at spinners' day out, Ruth and I chose to do our walking through Falls Park, and wound up at the new trail extension, the Cancer Survivors Park. There are trails, bridges, gazebos, waterfalls, and flowers galore. Here are Ruth and me on a lookout area, casting our shadows.
It was really hot, even in the morning, and we eventually found a shady bench in Falls Park for our spinning. In the afternoon, I continued weaving on the rigid heddle loom. This project is a result of stash-diving: a little bit of silk & cotton knitting leftovers, a few yards of handspun wool, and some fabric strips. I was practicing my leno moves so that I can teach them next week.
This morning I finished warping the dobby loom with some cotton for deflected double weave, a structure I have long admired but never tried for myself. It is addictive!
Sixteen shafts. It will be exciting to wash the sample and see them do their magic.
