The finished project washed and fulled. There was approx. 20% shrinkage as planned.
I attended beginner Weaving at Olds College in Alberta.
How exciting to use yarn made from my own sheeps wool
July has been a month full of Severe Warnings and Watches for thunderstorms, hail and tornados.
Here a strange cloud formation of active weather turns and goes away from us.

Beautiful weaving! What kind of loom?

Your weaving will get better, but you will never see as much beauty in your weaving as you do when you look and touch your farm's fibre in the finished product. Isn't it great?
Someday, I will make it out to Olds Fibre week...sigh....

Lovely! More details needed on the weaving if you're not too busy...

Nice to hear from you.

HI Val,
Summers are becoming very scarey with all the threats of tornadoes.
You are fortunate to be able to attend Olds. I have decided I am going to take weaving lessons at a shop nearby and buy a loom too. Hope my lace knitting doesn't suffer.
Your weaving is beautiful!!

That is beautiful! I can only imagine how exciting it is to use your own wool. Summer and winter - it has been a year for the weather.
