Cotton #2

Cotton #2, originally uploaded by davidscf.

Finished the second half of the cotton from my Tour de Fleece challenge. The second skein came out considerably finer than the first, so I’ll end up with a balanced weave for two napkins and an unbalanced weave for the second. These will now be boiled to finish them and hopefully I’ll get to start weaving tomorrow.

Spun on my Bosworth Attache charkha using Acala sliver from Cotton Clouds.

Nitty Gritty Details:

    I’m curious…do you ply on your charkha as well, or do you take that to a ‘regular’ wheel to ply? I love my Bosworth charkha, but I don’t think I would enjoy plying on it. This is a fabulous project! I’m enjoying watching it evolve on Ravelry.

    Thanks, Linda! I don’t ply on my charkha. Sounds like torture to me too :)
