Got up the other morning to find this guy on my little loom.

Off and running, here are some progress pictures. I like how the handspun is behaving, it gets thicker and thinner and makes for a more interesting texture... and wondering if I'll weave past certain places before it breaks keeps my mind occupied! It's sooo different weaving in the wool from the linen, kind of fun getting to know a different fiber.

I'm going to make this blanket in panels, so I can fit it on the little loom (that I've had for over 30 years) since the big one still has the linen. The outside panels will be the 'limestone' and the center the 'light'. It's interesting, after spending most of my life working with limestone to be trying to interpret it in wool. It's like the two big creative forces in my life converging.
