Rain, Rain, Go Away
Bought some batts from Jude Pilote of Ewesful Creations which arrived yesterday and I got inspired to set right down and start spinning. Today I plied the first bobbin using a black rayon with glitter. The glitter is a little stiffer than I'd hoped, but I still think the yarn turned out rather well. :)
Also continuing the count down of the last of the silk gimp warps - finished #6 today and just about to go and dress the loom with #5. Running out of choices for weft colours so I may get inventive and be a little bolder about weft colours. Necessity being the mother and all. :^) And sometimes it helps to get shoved out of one's comfort zone and be forced to be a little bit brave or adventurous or sometimes just a little silly.
The road less travelled and all.
Ultimately I'm hoping to finish these warps before the yarn I just ordered starts arriving!
It's been raining for several days with more to come. It could stop now - I wouldn't mind....
