I was showing my handspun cotton stash to my friends and talking over various drafts to use and we got sidetracked and eventually I doodled a draft in a notebook, and decided to try it out in wool as I need to spin up more cotton to make a warp for more than two towels or so. They helped me pick out some yarn from my stash and we set to warping. I have no lease sticks, so we made due to with some stick shuttles, thrums, and painter's tape. It worked!
I literally did a happy dance as I saw the cloth start to grow. This is literally clothing have dreamed of making. It was all handspun, leftover Manx Laughton from gnomespun I made into a sweater, some brown wool, and a yarn from the gnomespun spinning fiber club from a few years ago. The weft is a brown Shetland.
Once I saw the fabric develop and talked with my friends abou the value of practice, I decided to make 100 warps of this draft. I like how it looks, there is plenty of scope for exploration if I get bored, and the repetition will make sure I have warping down pat. I am just about halfway done with warp number two.
