It’s true. I love yarn. I enjoy touching it, spinning it, weaving it. I enjoy any and all things that involve working with or creating yarn. I’ve known this for many years but it was recently reinforced by the completion of yarn I was spinning. It took 4 bobbins to create the two ply yarn you see in these pictures. It’s a soft gray with white slubs interspersed throughout the yarn. I purchased the fiber from a local mill, Singleton Fiber Mill
, in Frederick, MD. It’s one of their “house” blends called Romoca
; a mix of romney, mohair and alpaca. It also has touches of angelina for shine.
I’m planning on weaving a long scarf on my Schacht Cricket and giving it a half twist before I join both ends to make it a mobius infinity scarf. I have a sketch in my project journal. Hoping to start this weekend. Step 1 is to McMorran the yarn and see how much I have. Step 2 is to plan the project on paper to see how much I need. Step 3 is to pray the two numbers (amount needed and amount spun) are close. Fingers crossed and pencil sharpened!
Here’s a little pic of the Schacht Cricket. This is one of my favorite looms. It super easy to warp, weave and move around the house or car with me as I weave.
This photo shows both the 10″ and 15″ Cricket.
