I have corrected the error, and cleared a shelf to put a lot of the cones of yarn that I can use for this project. ( I found this cool heather tan while I was clearing that shelf, and I gave it a try on the Swedish lace warp, I think I like it!)
They had been gathered around the cart where I had the bobbin winder. I say had, because today, as I was
I gave them each the amount of room I will need to use them! I also set up our old TV up there with a dvd player, though I am not so sure it is a good idea to have that up there! I could only find a few dvds in the house. I was either laughing at Jamie and Paul, from Mad about You, you know the one when they brought Mable home. Or I was crying through the first disc of the second season of the West Wing, (I am so glad that Josh made it aren't you!) I am not sure exactly how much work I actually got done!
You may get tired of seeing the same things over and over again, and sometimes I have to admit that I am in need of something fresh, so I started thinking of a new mug rug pattern. I had seen some hand towels recently using a M's and O's threading, with some stripes in the warp. I thought that I might give it a try.
This is the first sample.
It isn't doing anything for me!
So I abandoned the M's and O's and tried a twill with basket weave.
There is where I left it, not sure what to do, maybe I was too hasty, I probably need to try a different M's and O's don't you think? This was probably not the week to try something new like this, I got a head cold early on, and haven't been able to put two and two together let alone something as complicated as coming up with a new weaving design!
There is also something else that I have in the studio, like this lovely fleece, that I just could not not sample! It might be my next spinning project!
Oh, the softness, Oh the shine, Oh the possibilities!
But then, I looked up from the table in the studio, where I was eating my lunch, and I saw something that calmed my creative jitters.
Something that has entranced me for several years now, and I suppose the dance will go one for several more.
Isn't it beautiful, isn't this why we do it?
Yes it is! Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
