So a little while back I got a rigid heddle loom. I thought it would be a fun thing, and maybe a good way to something with the handspun I tend to accumulate in 4 oz skeins. The first project was so unspeakably ugly I won't show it, but here is number two. The warp is a millspun turquoise rayon, alternating with a thin cotton- and that cotton is one thread teal one purple. I spun the weft from a Lyocell roving from Carolina Homespun, in their 'Spirits of the Water' colorway. It came out quite pretty I think. And it was fun besides.
