How to Weave with Lithuanian Linen from Midwinter Yarns

During the summer the lovely Estelle at Midwinter Yarns got in touch with me to ask if I could weave a sample for them for their stand at shows using their Lithuanian Linen. This was very good timing as I had that day just been drooling over their linen Sweet Peas packs that they had […]

Warp speed

I think I’m finally getting this weaving thing right as I managed to get Vicky the Viking floor looms warp measured and beamed in about 2 hours or so. This is a world record for me and I hadn’t even messed any of the warp up. The warp is a red jute that I got […]

Weaving again:)

Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s been a while (well over a year) since I last blogged. Life kept on getting in the way and then lots of procrastination at the same time too. However, I am now back in the mind-set to blog about my random yarn-related fun. I’ll start off with the […]
