Janet Dawson (The Bobbin Tree, Sydney, NS) calls these the 'bunny eared bags of delight'. This is how Maurice Brassard ships large orders of yarn.
I have had to be stern with myself and leave it sitting like a carrot (get it?) and organize my studio, complete some priority stuff on my job list (still one more I'm procrastinating over). and just generally leave it alone until I have a better grasp of what absolutely needs to be slammed onto either of the looms first. Decisions, decisions!
The good news is that I have wet finished the two pieces of fabric off the sample warp, and surprise! The one I was going to keep for holiday runners appears to more closely meet the requirements so I'll send both off tomorrow and see what the designer says.
I have also found a source of spun hemp and hemp/cotton at a price that I could actually resell it - if it weaves up as nicely as I'm thinking it will. The sample order went in today and I will let you know how it works out. If I decide to sell some of it, it would become available in the spring on approximately 8 ounce cones. (Like I really needed to increase my stash - I have to buy 50 kilos of each kind of yarn to get a good price! Looks like I won't be giving up the annex any time soon?)
Now I really really need to deal with that group email regarding the tour in Jan/Feb....
