After all the white weaving this winter, I want colour.
Just happen to see the yarn that I bought on my last trip to London in January from Handweavers Studio. And that's just what I need in this still very cold windy weather. It's 10/2 cotton from Lunatic Fringe. This is only 10 colours from the 20 available. Handweavers Studio have made this as a kit and I thought it a good way to find out how I like the yarns.
Now, what order shall I choose? I'm going to make a scarf (I don't think there is enough yarn for more) and weft will be black Tencel. My first thought was the bottom version then I thought the middle one. But I like the top version too.
I can sleep on it as I will start warping tomorrow.
Another good reason for making a warp with 10/2 cotton is that I'm using my warping wheel again.
This will be my 2nd warp using the warping wheel. I think I've learned enough from the 1st time for it to go smoother this time. And the beam is now in a better place where I can reach!
After this I want to have a go with finer yarns, but they are new to me yarns so I want to be able to use the warping wheel well before embarking on these finer yarns.
