welcome spring!

I’ve been busy with the loom again this week.  Inspired by sunshine and flowers peeking through, I found the springiest colours I could find.

The handspun is something I spun up two years ago and has been patiently sitting in my stash drawer, a soft wool.  The warp is a yarn I picked up at Weaving Works in Seattle, Manos del Uruguay’s Serena, an alpaca and cotton blend.  The finished size is 11.5″ by 68″ with 5″ fringe.

I love the rustic quality of the handspun, the imperfect edges and the softest feel around the neck.  I don’t know about your spring, but here it’s still pretty chilly.  As much as I want to go outside in capris, a tee shirt and sandals, it’s not happening quite yet.  But soon!!

Have a good springy weekend!
