Since my hubby has to sleep during the day due to working evenings the next few weeks, it has allowed me to be a bit creative. Needless to say this weekend has not only been productive but quite fun!
I have finished the first sleeve of my Aidez and casted on the second one, which I hope to finish by next weekend. I really love how this pattern is looking and I’m super excited to get finally be able to knit this pattern.
I also finished spinning and plying my Shetland and Silk blend and achieved 215 yards of light worsted weight. I now have on my wheel a lovely superwash merino by FatCats called Wayferer. The colors in this fiber remind me of old-fashion rose potpourri and the fiber, well it is soooo soft! This is spinning up quite lovely and I’m achieving my goal of spinning thin.
Finally I’ve found the time to learn how to weave! Today I watched a great online class called Rigid Heddle Weaving that is taught by Angela Tong, a fiber arts designer based in New York. This class teaches the basics of weaving, how to set up your Cricket Loom and so much more. I think I could be addicted to weaving as much as I am with spinning! If you are thinking about purchasing a Cricket or have been looking for a class, this class really is great and I love the format.
I hope you’ve had a great weekend too!
Until next time, happy knitting, spinning and crafting!
