Spinning & Weaving!

I can't believe how fast the summer is going now. Soon I will have to think about going back to my full time job of teaching at the more playing for awhile then. And playing I have been doing. I wiped the dust off the spinning wheels and have been trying my hand at some chunky spun yarn. What fun I have had doing this. I dyed a whole fleece into three different colorways and getting ready to spin up some for the next scarf I am making. I also purchased a new rectangel loom. After several trials to get going I finished my first one. Check it out:

I have another one on the loom and am spinning some wool and silk to make another one. They really do up pretty quickly. I am surprised but I like it. Well off to finish knitting a purse that needs felted for a class project. More to come later!
