future weaving

On the right: 656 yards plus of oatmeal-colored Blue Faced Leicester spindle spun.

This method of winding a ball I spotted in a book, and the image wouldn't go away until I tried it myself. It's far, far too time consuming; the large ball took over three hours to wind, but still . . . it's lovely to behold. . . and quite dense.

There's always more bits to share, but they seem to be ganging up on me lately.

It is the best ball I have ever seen, but can imagine you will not make many of them.

I am too impatient to attempt but how beautiful! I will enjoy vicariously. Really lovely photo, as well. Nice to see you on here! I love your posts!
