Remember a few weeks ago when I talked about how things were going to change around here?
Then remember a couple of weeks ago when I talked about the spin and weave along?
Well, things are moving along at a very nice speed. Lots of changes are coming and time is flying by so we just keep working and having new ideas and making more exciting work for ourselves.
Today I want to talk about the Spin and Weave Along, how it’s going to work, and then a little contest. This can work for people with floor looms, table looms or rigid heddle looms so everybody!
Have you signed up for the Weaving Newsletter yet? The first issue will go out on Friday November 24th. In that newsletter will be an opportunity to buy the kit for the Spin and Weave Along before everyone else can get it. The thing about that is there will be a limited number of kits available so having a subscription to the weaving newsletter may be advantageous.
The following week the kits will be available on my website. I will be taking orders for the kits and all kits will go in the mail on December 20th.
On January 1 we will begin the weekly newsletter that will go on for 4 weeks. Each week will include hints and tips and links. We will be using commercial yarn for the warp in this scarf project and we will be spinning the weft. You can either do exactly what I say or I can give a few ideas about how you can change things a little. Some little tips will be on the blog but the majority of the information will be found in the newsletter. Even if you aren’t interested in a kit, sign up for the newsletter and you can follow along with your own materials.
Together we will warp our looms, spin the weft, weave the scarf and talk about finishing. The yarn being used in Colorway 1 will be Spunky Eclectic Glimmer which is a Superwash Merino with a tiny bit of Lurex glimmer blended in. Colorway 2 and 3 are Spunky Eclectic Panda Sock which is a blend of Superwash Merino with about 35% Bamboo. The fiber we will be spinning is a very lovely Polwarth top.
Now for the contest. I am giving away one kit to a lucky winner. Here’s how you can enter; comment on this blog post!
