I have started a new weaving project. It's an idea I had a while ago to use up leftover handspun scraps. I've got a few 1/4 bobbins of little leftovers that didn't make it into one yarn or another. Little samples that got spun on my drop spindles. Half finished yarns on my drop spindles. Just singles all over the place that need to be used.
The warp is a laceweight boucle acrylic/wool blend. It's quite lovely and soft, but mostly acrylic. The weft will be everything from silk to linen to wool to bison!! The first two stripes are linen/cotton (white) and wool/silk (purple). There will be green, blue, pink, red, yellow, and everything in between. I am excited about the finished product. If it looks especially nice, I might not keep it as a shawl. I might do two 3ft lengths and whipstitch them together as a baby blanket for Incubating Mouselet.
The dress is stockinette to the waist(-ish...babies don't really have "waists"), and then it will flare out in some cute little lace. I'm still looking for the perfect stitch.
I'll just need a bonnet and some little mitties and she'll be the belle of the ball...and the apple of her daddy's eye.
