Say hello.... and good bye to this! I just cut off the first scarf attempt this afternoon. I wove roughly 30 slow inches and in that distance, the floating selvedge broke 8 times. Its just not worth my time to keep on fighting with it.
So I'm resleying and will give the second scarf a go for 10-12 inches and see how it behaves. Its been warned and the scissors are on stand by. There will be some changes made to the pattern and how I plan to weave it so we'll see how this pans out. It either will or it won't.
I had such a good time weaving the recent Royal Stewart scarves and had hope to continue the fun but this has been a big disappointment. I told my hubby it was yet another learning experience and today it was all about cutting your losses (literally) 😁✂️
So the Megado loom has a new warp on it. Eleven yards of ring-spun cotton that fought us tooth and nail going on to the loom. It was a bit awkward as it had a lot of over spin in the yarn and so it wanted to curl up and then cling to its neighbour. I have 3- 3 pound cones of it so future warps will be shorter and hopefully sweeter. Nothing much has happened there since beaming the warp as I went onto other battles on the Spring loom.
I have mentioned before that I have issues with my feet so I have decided to make some changes in my other toys. I have my Louet Victoria wheel up for sale at Etsy and was nudged into buying a Hansen mini spinner a bit sooner than I planned due to Hansen having a brief sale last month I just couldn't say no to. So I have been playing with this little machine this week:
