In my quest for a hobby which I can do without over using my thumbs, I listened to my friend Julie. Julie recommended weaving but I found my 24″ rigid heddle loom a bit daunting so I purchased a 10″ one to learn on. Here it is waxed and assembled (by me)
Of course my hand woven yarn isn’t strong enough to use as warp, and I clearly didn’t have anything suitable (!!!). I did fancy a bit of an outing so Jules and I went to Stamford to the Ewe wool shop. It held many delights. Sigh.
Although I have not been able to spin for more than 10-15 minutes at a time, I did manage to ply some singles already spun. 135 gms of the soft blue and 110 gms of the greeny blue.
