Tour de Fleece 2010 - rest day
I spun for a few short moments today. It's a good thing it's a rest day today because the stars were against me. I managed to spin about three feet of yarn and most of that ended in slubs or tangles. Not to mention I spun it the wrong way. I wanted a counter-clockwise twist (S) but spun it regular old clockwise (Z) instead.
I did however make a considerable start on the rug for the back bedroom. It's weft face with simple old cotton for the warp and Briggs Little Regal for the weft (colours, forest brown and light brown). I'll make two panels, 44" each and then I have to learn how to sew them together. This is only panel one and being weft faced, it takes forever to weave.
