I see Dust Bunnies as a good thing; it’s a clear signal that I’m working often at the loom; of course, anywhere else in the house I’m not so keen on seeing them!
Like a lot of Weavers I came upon weaving as a way to utilize my handspun fibre. As a break from weaving I love to sit at my Lendrum wheel and just feel the fibre run through my fingers. Here’s a peek at my current spinning project.
I had white and blue merino sliver in my stash and found them a bit uninspiring; a blend would be the way to go; so, at the recent Ponderosa Weavers Guild Spin In, in Kelowna I purchased a lovely grass green sliver that I knew would liven up the other two colours.
I pulled 12” sections from the green sliver and fanned it open; in each section I placed a small amount of the white and blue wool. I then rolled the green sliver around its filling and made little snails.
I think that they look very lovely as they wait for spinning, and are looking exciting as a spun single too.
