Now, it's back to my regularly scheduled life.
I took my poor excuse for a jig to the Center on Tuesday and showed my lack of drilling skills to Allan. He took the dowels and my little board home with him to fix. Tuesday afternoon he was ringing the doorbell with this little gem. (Allan is now my official HERO!) So, in the meantime, I've been practicing my square knots. This site recommended tying the square knots with surgeon's knots to make them stronger. Since there will be lots of pressure on the knots, I think that might be a good idea.
One thing for sure, it is easier to tie them with carpet warp....linen tends to want to twist....so I need to be very careful!!!!
On my way to the Center yesterday to take the looms for today's class, I stopped by Clinch River Yarn Company. (www.ClinchRiverYarns.com) I have used up all of my tiny mohair that I like to use in the art yarn.
It does help having a specific item in mind before I go in a shop like Clinch River or I'll end up with LOTS of fiber goodness!!!! I found this lovely mohair blend with bling!!!! How perfect!!! I wish I had had this black to make the yarn for my chenille wrap...it would have added an extra level of loveliness!!!
My basket is full of the stuff I need for today's class. I revised the handouts and stamped new bags for the finished mug rugs. Fabric balls were added to the stash and shuttles were rounded up for the class.
I packed my lunch.....all I need to do now is get dressed and drive to the Center. Another day of throwing the shuttle with new weavers.
Ahhhh......life is good!!!!
Enjoy your Fall day!
Happy Weaving (and all other fiber goodness!)
