An Old Carding Song

'Oh ! tarry woo ; oh ! tarry woo !
Tarry woo is ill to spin ;
Oh ! card it weel, oh ! card it weel,
Card it weel ere ye begin.
When it's carded, rove and spun,
Then your work is but hawf done ;
But when its woven, dress'd and clean,
It will be cleading' for a queen.'

weaving box bags

measuring up for the warp
Weaving started earlier in 2012.
We collected our boxes and then on a Friday when we are at spinning all day we commenced.
Over the next 6 months or so we worked on our bags and some of the finished ones were brought to our meeting last Friday for show and tell!
