Super-coils

If you are having a hard time spinning a thick single to make a supercoil. Try using some of your corespun yarn. Corespun can be spun thick just by using a thick core, like mohair. Then you can easily supercoil this.

Some of my corespun supercooled.

Beehives in corespun yarn

Corespinning art yarn.

It is great fun to spin beehives and locks into your corespun yarn, If you are just learning to add beehives try using fiber from your batt, or matching fiber, your mistakes won't show.

Tom Knisely Rug Weaving Class

I took a weaving class taught by Tom Knisely in October of 2015. It was a class on rug weaving. I had a great time. The threading for the warp used a rose path threading sequence. It was fun to see all of the different designs you can get with that sequence. Rosepath sampler photo
