the cone of intention

posted in: Blog | 4

There was a yarn fair just down the road in Perth today and I bought half a kilo of a 2/16 blend of merino (75%) and angora (25%). I plan to dye some warps, and it will be interesting to see how this turns out given the mix of fibres. On the other hand, there’s plenty there to accommodate more white-on-white Theo Moorman…

However, that lovely plan I had for a boring couple of months has rather come off the rails and there is much to-ing and fro-ing to be done in the next little while. So this yarn is a cone of intention rather than immediate action.

    Well-put. I could say half of my stash room is different intentions. Good luck in all your endeavors; keep us updated, especially about your and your Mum’s open studio plans.

    I’ll add my 2 pence to Laura’s and Meg’s. Silk warp, definitely. And never try to keep life from getting in the way of weaving – that just leads to frustration. The weaving will get done when it gets done, and the to’ing and fro’ing will create its own schedule, too. Relax and let them have their way.
