Heading to the Loom

It is time for the warp to hit the loom! Earlier this summer Handweavers Guild of America had a selection of yarns, Convergence 2010 Commemorative Yarn handpainted by Teresa Ruch Designs . It was hard to resist this yarn. And since there is another year till the conference, there will certainly be time to weave a scarf to wear during the fashion show event. Yes, there will be time to weave, but first the loom needs to be warped; it just doesn't warp itself--we wish!

The yarn is bamboo. Plans are to use silk sewing thread for the weft and the warp will be sett warp faced, maybe 30 or 36 epi. The weaving should, we write should, go quickly once it has been warped.
Okay, the yarn has been balled from the skein and now winding on the warping board.

Looks pretty cool, huh? Stay tuned to see if this will be woven this summer.
