I’ve been working all morning on winding off warp. I’m winding off enough for two more table runners. (on one warp) I’m about halfway done, but that’s because I stopped to run, eat lunch, talk to mom and Sarah (my sister) and post this!! I wanted to share pictures of the warp color though. I’m just using one color this time because I only have 8/2 mercerized cotton in one color. (Yup. It’s 8/2 cotton AND it’s mercerized. It’s harder than you think to find)
I’m pretty happy with the color. Although, I did have to steal (Okay… took with permission) some from my mom’s cone of yarn. I didn’t have as much left as I thought. But that’s okay. I’m planning on using white as weft again. (I know. boring.) But I have a plan for one of these which I shall not speak of on here. Who knows who might be reading! haha. 😉 I’m SO happy that it’s COTTON! That means I can make fringe and NOT twist it! UNTHINKABLE! I’m soo happy. I may make one with fringe and one without…I’m not sure yet. Either way I’m pretty excited to finish winding off the warp and get going!
Then I really do need to get back to making things for my inventory! Especially if I plan on doing a big craft show in the spring. (And I do) I’m trying to come up with interesting and unique ideas, patterns, textures, yarns, projects, etc. I have a few fun ideas of things to try. We’ll see if they actually work! 🙂 Okay. I’m going to finish winding off warp and perhaps start tying this bitch on. HA! (a bit hyper right now…must be a delayed endorphin rush…) All done.
