Our Spring weather has turned rather cold and snowy in recent days. Although we don't get snow at home it isn't very far away and the icy winds off the local mountains are making themselves felt here. August and September are always quite windy so the addition of snow makes it unpleasant. However, that means we can stay curled up at home with a good book, our knitting, spinning and weaving - that's me covered - haven't worried about anyone who doesn't do those things!
My next two efforts at weaving are moving into autumn colours and purples/greys. I've sorted out all my handspun to see what I have in various colours and then looked through yarns for warping from a collection my aunt gave me years ago together with oddments from my hand-dying. That's an awesome collection but it's funny how you can decide that the exact yarn you are looking for itsn't there!
Anyway, its fun to play and learn. While I am still using fairly bulky yarns I am planning on using some finer yarns to make some soft and drapey scarves soon.
