My journey into the world of weaving

And onward!


The fourth placemat is finished. I think I will get two more out of this warp, which really means seven in all, which falls into my plan almost perfectly. I did warp extra after all, not knowing I would cut off the first mat!

The warp for the dish towels is ready. No further excitement there, just four bouts ready to go.

Vacation comes to an end. I perhaps didn’t weave as much as I thought I would but I did weave almost every day. I was reminded that I should not make assumptions in my weaving – when I begin to do so, I will make errors in my work. It’s that lesson of humility again. By the end of the week, I felt my shuttle fly! And that felt good.

So onward to the last two. I do not assume no errors but I will pay heed to the process, not the product.

  1. You have had a very good vacation! Congratulations.

  2. *sigh* vacation comes to an end. What a nice one it seems you had.

    You really got a lot done.

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a piece that was perfect from warp to finish — without having had to unweave, or rewind, or fix threads, or or or. Each warp is it’s own entity for sure.

    Humilty is a frequent guest at my studio door.

    Weave on!


  3. OK, you’re ahead of me on the dishtowels. Actually I goofed up the warp and so am going to weave functional samples. Then the dishtowels.

  4. Leigh, you could easily catch up with me! It feels like I have stalled a bit. But I will get some serious weaving done this weekend.
    It’s reassuring to know that, Jane.
    And, thanks, Peg! Always a pleasure to hear from you!
