July 4, Day 6
I had the day off for the holiday, so, of course, I crafted!
I finished knitting some swatches that have to stay secret, for now.
Then, I wove a bellydance belt. It has a very long fringe that was kind of tedious. I'm happy with how it came out, but I don't think I'll do another one for a long time.
I used two skeins of SWTC Bamboo, one a multicolor and the other a solid, held double. Colorways and ball bands have been lost to the mists of time.
I wove on a 7.5 reed, for a basketweave effect (doubling a thinner yarn to work on a thicker sett). Woven pretty loosely at about 6 picks per inch.
The fabric is pretty, but time will tell how well it holds up!
I finished spinning the first bobbin my batt and started on the second bobbin. The photo is of the first bobbin, resting on my Kate.
July 5: Day 7
I didn't have time to spin this morning, but I did plan my next weaving project. I'm going to try my first two-color bit of weaving. I'll let you know how it goes!
Tonight, I'll spin for at least 20 minutes, but probably for a lot longer. Fridays are almost always movie-and-a-craft nights, and I don't have any knitting deadlines right now.
