Rolling out the purple and orange carpet!

This is a joint project that Christie warped and we shared the weaving. It is two scarves and requires extensive fullling, hence the length! Next steps involving immersing in boiling water and then some hot soapy water and agitation... in the bathtub, I think... more pictures to follow.

I have been drop spindling which has expanded my "found time," perfect for situations like being at your child's spring fair and waiting in the 45 minute line-up for your daugther to take a pony ride, while she runs off to have some fun, buy a cupcake! Alden Amos has a small but good chapter on drop spindles, namely how to load 3 times as much , before winding it off.
