And, of course, it would not be a first project without the first tangle. But, lots of folks jumped in to help out. That's just the way we roll!!!!
(Thank you Christy, Cindy and Lanny!)
Tina and I wound on a 60 yard warp for Ellen's Place Mats. Since this is a pattern that is often woven at the Center, we are having a special hang tag done for the mats for this warp to celebrate her contribution to the Weaving Department.
I cranked while Tina watched for errand threads that like to jump the bar. (Sneaky little things!!!)
You can see Bonnie back on her loom....just weaving away.
And, here's Tina cutting off the last bout for that warp. She was already threading the loom when I left for the day.
Maggie and Linda took some time to catch up on all the news. We had a big discussion today about the "sock looms." This will be an on going topic!
Lanny's warp is over the back beam, and we all thought he would get to cut it off today.....but that didn't happen after all. (He was busy helping to untangle Jinx's threads!)
On the other hand, Ms. Ila did cut off her warp of mug rugs!!!! Grand total: 39
Maggie put Ms. Joyce to work cutting the white fabric she's using into the right size for her place mats.
Ms. Andy got all the math done for her shawls, and started winding the warp. I'm looking forward to seeing this project step by step!
Before we sat down for lunch, we took time to make a new group picture. We're missing a few of our regulars, but it is so hard to get everyone here on the same day (and to get them to sit down long enough to take their picture!!!!) But, it was time to put the Christmas picture away!
By the way, I know that Ann is celebrating having her daughter home again!!!! We'll all catch up next week.
In the meantime:
