Another of the vendors at the NEWS Conference was JUST OUR YARN.
Notice the rack of luscious painted 10/2 tencel yarn. Also notice the beautiful tencel horoscope scarf at the top of the rack.
These are the colors I selected for the horoscope weaving and some of the yarn that was leftover after I wove the above scarf.
In one of my Dye Days, I decided to ikat overdye some of the tencel (the colors) along with the bamboo yarn (black, gray, and white). I was curious about how the tencel would dye up, which was great by the way.
Now that I have started to integrate my NEWS experience, I realize I have to have a tencel weaving of my very own and bring another something new in Turned Weft Ikat to my upcoming lecture. I'm not certain what I am going to do exactly, but the only thing I know is that the warp is 3 yards long sett at 32 epi. It will be fun to watch this grow.
