Monday .... found the grey locks, I think it's Romney. It's very soft and lovely to spin, although a few bits are full of VM and other trash. I spun one bobbin full and started on the second. Loom is warped and ready to weave.
Wednesday... finished spinning the second bobbin. It was more cloud, snow and rain outside. I swear I spent half the day trying to watch the seedlings grow. I plied the two bobbins into two skeins. I have now about 337 yards of black, plied wool for the weft. I'll need at least another 400- 500 yards according to my calculations. I switch the sett at the beginning. I was pretty sure that the EPI of 9 wasn't quite right. I used 10 instead. I think that small change will make a big difference. It will however probably increase the amount of weft I need too, if I'm aiming for an even twill.
As a bonus, the seeds that didn't germinate yesterday, despite my watching them, have germinated today.. Some tomatoes, cabbages, summer savory, winter savory, marjoram, soup celery have all made their appearances! Still waiting on a few things and still have to plant a few more.. some need to be started only 3 or 4 weeks early but the woad, madder, indigo and dyer's knotweed should get started soon..
