Nedjeljno prelo / Spinning Sunday

Ne znam koliko se sjećate bakinih i prabakinih priča, netko je možda imao priliku doživjeti i sam duge zimske noći provedene u ženskom društvu, uz hrpu perja za čijanje i pripremu novih jastuka i poplona, ili večeri provedene u snovanju tkalačkog stana, raspravom sa susjedama i prijateljicama, razmjenom novih recepata ili samo priča iz proteklog tjedna.
Sad si zamislite šta se desi u današnje vrijeme kad se skupe tri ženske, tri kolovrata, tri kilograma raznoraznih obojanih prediva, i pun stol raznobojnih perlica, kuglica, školjkica, konaca, ukrasa svih boja i veličina....... Nedjeljno prelo!
Dakle, na inicijativu jedne od tkalja i prelja koja je nedavno bila na naprednom tečaju predenja na kojem je naučila presti tzv. fancy yarns (iliti sva ona neobična, luda i otkačena vuna koju svi sanjamo, a nigdje ju ne možemo kupiti, ili ju moramo previše platiti) skupile smo se danas popodne da i nas druge dvije naučimo kako to ide. I bilo je super. Evo nekoliko sličica da vam dočaram atmosferu, početak i kraj. Moje su probne vunice u pranju, ali evo popodnevnih slika da znate o čemu pričam. Napokon mogu slagati vunu sa perlicama, končićima i kojekakvim komadima, ili sama slagati bukle vunu. Fenomenalno iskustvo, sad samo treba dalje vježbati.
Not sure how many of you would remember the grannies stories and how many had the opportunity to experience the long winter evenings spent in the female company, cleaning the feathers for the new pillow cases, warping the weaving looms and discussing the latest Christmas recipes with friends and neighbors. Well, imagine what happens nowadays when you put three women, three spinning wheels, three kilograms of various yarns and table full of pearls, threads and decorations of every make and color. Sunday spinning! On the innitiative of one of the weavers and spinners that has recently attended an advanced spinning course where she learned to make fancy yarns - all those unusual, somewhat crazy and weird wool that everyone dreams of having sometimes, but is difficult to find it in the store, or is just overly expensive - we had a follow up session during which she thought the others. We had a great fun, and I have finally learned to make yarn with beads, threads, leftovers of fabrics, shells, just every piece you planned to throw away but have finally kept hidden away.
My fancy yarn is in the wash, but here are just some photos of what we all did and bring you the atmosphere
of the afternoon. It was a brilliant experience, we should surely repeat it again soon.

O da, sjećam se čihanja perja... i razumijem tvoje zadovoljstvo nedjeljnim prelom, ja jedva čekam novi susret s mojim pletiljama... kao što jedva čekam da vidim kakvo će tkanje ispasti s tako ispredenom vunom!
