Aspects of Fate

December 30th, 2008 · 4 Comments

You all know the three fates:¬† Clotho, Lachesis and Atropo.¬† And yes, I did read the Piers Anthony books 🙂

First Clotho, spinner of the thread:



Batting next is Lachesis. 

Last night after getting the kids off to bed, I pulled out the warping board and measured for the scarf project.

Yum!¬† 82 ends of 110″.¬† As you can see on the bobbin, I still have plenty of yarn left.¬† For perspective, that’s one of my WW bobbins for the Womack, which incidentally is an identical twin to the Lendrum WW bobbin.¬† And yes, I did manage to cram all 8oz of plied yarn onto it with room to spare.

I’m working towards my first woven project entirely from hand spun.¬† I haven’t woven in quite a while now.¬† I picked my warping board up from storage and noticed that my floor loom still has the placemat project on it that I started in about 2002.¬† I know, pretty sad.¬†¬†

After finishing measuring the warp, I put the loom together and attached to the back beam.¬† I’ll wind it on tonight and fingers crossed, thread the heddles and the reed.¬† It is possible.¬† Not sure how likely as I’ve picked up some bug that has me coughing my lungs out.¬†

I probably won’t get a chance to post tomorrow, I wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year!

Craft on!

    I am waiting with bait to see what the finished project/scarf looks like. ~ksp

    Weaving is the new spinning. (Note to self: you do NOT need another new hobby, no matter WHAT Risa might be doing!)
