Another new toy
On my way to visit family in Green Bay, I stopped at a nice little shop in Fondulac called Woolgatherers just to look around. I walked out with a new Ashford 16" rigid heddle loom. When I got home from my visit I put it together (waxing it with furniture wax first). I let it dry over night. It was actually easy to assemble, and I was warping it right away. With only a few breaks here and there, I had a scarf done by evening. I really love my new loom. I Have her warped up and ready for another scarf. BUT....Today is the first day of the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival and I have a class with Stephania Isaccson usin natural dyes. I'm so excited I couldn't sleep last night-silly, I know-but I wait all year for this and plan my vacation around it. I have a spinning goat fibers class tomorrow with Amy Tyler. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and tell everyone all about it next week. Happy Fibery weekend!!!
