Doesn't this make you want to go weave something? Me too!
I came home from our guild meeting on Wednesday with some dye left over from a workshop. (You know how "free" is my favorite price, right?)
My plan was to freeze the dye until spring, but when I saw how many colors I had, and how full the freezer is, I decided I should use the dye this weekend.
Tomorrow at the open studios I'll mostly wind skeins of cotton and linen to dye. (But maybe I'll get to knit a little as a reward for skeining.)
Then Sunday I'll dye lots and lots of yarn.
Progress on my scarf should pick up again on Monday. I've got all the parts to add two more shafts to the Toika ready to go. That will be top on my studio agenda next week. (Plus I have all kinds of different wefts picked out to try! Fingers crossed that some combination of the change in sett, picks per inch, warp tension, weave structure and weft will produce several beautiful and comfortable scarves.)
Some one at the guild did say "That fabric would make a beautiful bag. It's nice and sturdy." I guess that's my fallback plan! (I kid, I kid....I'm sure with all of your great advice I'll be able to turn this warp into a scarf or two or three!!)
