It's my birthday and I decided, at the last moment, to take the day off and be, you know, crafty and such. Try to contain your shock.
The first thing I did, after kissing Leo goodbye, was to warp my heddle loom with two shades of Kauni. I think the gradual color shifts will make for an interesting final piece. Both shades are monochromatic so it'll be subtle.
I managed to warp the loom in less than an hour, which isn't bad, considering how fast it goes after that. I've spent longer working a tubular cast on for a sweater.
I've also been spinning some more of the Cormo I picked up a little while ago.
I love this stuff. I used a long draw method to spin the singles and then plied the singles into a 3-ply. The final yarn is about a worsted weight and very sproingy and soft. I have just under 300 yards and quite a bit more roving to spin. It's going to have to be something with cables, I think.
I hope my birthday is as fun for all of you as it's already been for me.
