On Friday I wondered “what was I thinking?” when I set up a class for the middle of lambing time. Some days in the last two weeks I have spent most of the day in the barn but luckily the class went smoothly with only a few barn-check breaks while everyone was working on their looms.This was a class about weaving with rayon chenille, a yarn with a reputation of being difficult to work with. I set up 4 warping frames on temporary structures and the fifth person used the one I have mounted on the wall.After the looms were warped and ready to go I was surprised that it wasn’t all that crowded with five looms. Each person chose a different combination of colors for their scarves:
We did take a barn break or two. One lamb was born during class and two more right afterward.Everyone finished weaving in the class time (although fringes will be finished at home) and all were pleased with their scarves.
