The Wichita Weavers, Spinners and Dyers' Guild is displaying our work for an upcoming event.  The instructions are to spin fiber, (I used Merino, bamboo, and tussah silk.), and make a pair of fingerless gloves to match a framed photograph of Kansas, color wise, using the handspun yarn.  I work at an apartment community and one of the residents took a picture of the lake the apartments surround.  I thought this photo would be a great photo to use for the project.  I purchased the wool roving to spin the wool.  I prefer to card my wool and make a one of a kind batt, but occasionally it is nice to buy fiber which is ready to spin.  This weekend, I spun the wool for the gloves.  I will keep you posted as the gloves progress. (They are over half done at this time.) I plan to make gloves like the gloves I crocheted a couple of years ago.  The photo is not in the frame shown above, but I will show you very soon.  I like the use of the photo as an inspiration piece.  What do you think?  Will it help inspire you?
