I don't want to look at these 2345 yards again for a long time. Luckily the warp yarn for my blanket project is on backorder giving me the perfect excuse not to.
Some spinners are smart enough to track how long it takes them to do a project like this. I am smart enough NOT to. If I factored my time and knew that the blanket was worth the equivalent of $8,000 I probably would never use it. I don't know how long this project is going to take, but I do know the finished product will be priceless.
Congratulations! The weaving will go MUCH quicker!! And you'll be so proud you did it.
WOW,that is awesome, your are doing Sheville proud, your spinning wheel must be smokin' hot.
That's like a mile and a half :-)
Amazing accomplishment, at least in my eyes!
So funny. :) $8,000.00 for a handmade blanket - if only people were willing to pay that - fiber artistry could be one of the highest paid professions. :) Beautiful yarn - congratulations!
Congratulations!!! That yarn looks awesome. What a lot of work is behind you - the weaving part will go much faster.
Wow! That's a lot of treadling. The yarn is beautiful and I'm sure the blanket will be a treasure.
Hurrah ... this will be WOW.
HAHA! I always laugh when I am preparing items to sell at market and well-meaning family members ask, "Did you figure your time into the price?", not understanding that nobody would pay the price if that were the case. Or conversely, market customers picking up a skein of handspun yarn and asking, "TWENTY DOLLARS???? FOR YARN?!?!"
The yarn looks amazing. Handcrafted items would cost more than a MacBook if we took into account the time we put into them. Which would be great, if people would pay it! water damage Kokomo IN
Spinning? No offense but it might take you a decade to finish your project. Just kidding! But, I really can’t to see the finished product. I wish you could add other colors to, just to be more captivating, don’t you think? Anyway, do keep us updated. Good luck on that!sh
Just came across your blog. Wow! What a project! I want to weave from my own spinning, but I just can't find the courage to start! I don't want to even try to factor in my time spent on handcrafted projects, even at minimum wage.
This is great!
