Colourful



Yesterday Doug got the pressing done and this morning brought home the scarves.  They still need to be trimmed and tagged before they are 'ready'.  I also want to carefully examine them and decide which weft I will concentrate on using.

Of course the one I like best so far is the finest weft (Bambu 12, equivalent to a 2/16 cotton for grist) which means the most weaving.  :-/

I am almost done winding the warps to be dyed so I am going to concentrate on those and see if I can't get that job crossed off my list entirely.  Once they are packaged up ready to be delivered I can go back to weaving for A Good Yarn: Linen and Hemp.

The warp on the AVL will be used for that plus I have two more designed, just waiting for the warping board to be freed up to wind those.  I don't know that I will get the two warps woven on the small loom before I leave for Langley, but that's the plan.

Once I get home from there I will have less than two weeks before I leave for Sweden.  I need to really focus on where to best spend my time.

In the meantime spring seems to have finally sprung.  The snow on the ground is rapidly diminishing although the snow piled high in banks along the roads is going to take a while.

Laura, no matter which weft you end up using it will be beautiful. I like all the scarves - beautiful!
