I said that I was going to show you the crazy things I have bought in this bag when all the moving pieces get here.
The last piece of the puzzle showed up yesterday in a box with a sheep on it. Squeee......
The bag was from Hipstrings and it contained three packages of cotton. Spinning cotton.
The box with the sheep on it contained another box and a couple of samples of more spinning cotton.
In that pretty box was a teeny tiny spindle called a tahkli that is used for spinning cotton. Why all the interest in spinning cotton?
Because Wolf Pup is back in the living area cleaned and ready for a project. I've always wanted to weave something from my own hand spun cotton.
It's going to take me forever to spin enough cotton for a towel so this kit will be the first thing on the loom when I get the time to start winding it all on.
It's not like I'm in a hurry to get any of this done. Look at this pile giant of towels I just unpacked. All woven by yours truly. I had no idea I had so many. Oh, well....it's like everything else I like to make from socks to quilts. Too much and too many-but you gotta do something all day.
That is an ambitious project. The box the spindle came in is exquisite.ReplyDelete
That will make beautiful towels!! I love your assortment!!ReplyDelete
Oh, you can weave again! Yippee! The cotton can be a good spin if you remember it isn't wool!ReplyDelete
I love watching your weaving work emerge!ReplyDelete
