Sixteen yards of linen, 320 ends, with Tina's and Pat's help, have been tamed and subdued, and now await threading and sleying. Next week, I'd like absolute silence, please! I will be threading tabby, not too difficult, but it's always the simple ones that get me!
Can you imagine Tuesday Weavers being quiet for the entire four hours? Yesterday, during lunch, Sharen said to me, "I can't follow any of these conversations!" I said, "I just let it flow over me!" Sometimes, I will be weaving or winding or threading, just listening to the cacophony of voices in the room and feel so happy and grateful to be part of this amazing group. Most weavers work in solitude, but we have each other, to learn from, share with and support. We are so lucky!
At home last night, after my post-Tuesday Weaving nap--I always have one!-- I decided to give the next turned overshot pattern another go. My last attempt left my brain smoldering and a pencil being flung across the room.
Have a week full of progress! Happy weaving!
