I measured out warp for ikat warp dyeing.
Ikat is something I've always wanted to try. It is labor intensive - warp threads are bound to resist the dye, and then it must be unbound after dyeing. My indigo vat is temporarily on hiatus. After many weeks of heavy use, I need to add more indigo! So my warp will wait until then.
I warped the loom with some hand dyed yarns for a simple plain weave scarf. I'm enjoying watching the color shifts and it is working up nicely. I should finish weaving it today. Once the finishing details are done and photographs taken it should be up in the shop soon.
Finally, I've started spinning up my first fleece of 2013. It is a sweet little Romney lamb's fleece. It is the cleanest fleece I've seen, soft, beautiful almost black to gray and spins beautifully.
I'm still plugging away on my quilts. I have one for a show submission almost finished. It has been quite a taskmaster as it demanded all hand quilting, but I'm very pleased with how it is turning out. I next need to turn my attention to a quilt that has a home waiting. I was at a meeting last week and someone saw the in progress quilt. They asked to purchase it once it is finished!
