┬áDay 5 Plying, Spindling and a Silky

An overcast morning cleared into a beautiful sunny afternoon. It was a great day for my next installment of Tour de Fleece spinning. This morning I felt like working with my drop spindle for a while.

While I was spinning my silky terrier Spencer was resting from a rousing round of chase the weasels and birds.

This afternoon’s results are from plyiing the singles from Days 2 to 4.

While I was plying in my studio the bird feeder hanging outside the window was visited by sparrows, goldfinches and a tree squirrel. None of them seemed to mind that I was spinning in the studio about 3 feet away from the window.
What a glorious day!

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who likes to weave fabric for clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf appeared on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Handwoven magazine. I invented the freeform overshot weaving technique with which I wove my Mermaid Scarf. I sell weaving patterns and instructional booklets in my Etsy shop. Visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens. Join my Facebook group Weave Along With Lisa Rayner for weaving instruction and inspiration. You'll also find Lisa Rayner Handwovens on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. I like complex patterns, hand dyed yarns, high quality fibers and customers who want me to make them something special. I am not a production weaver. All items are custom made.
