Yes, I'm still working on my first weaving project.
One afternoon a week I make my way to the arts center downtown and stake out the little loom by the door to the supply room.
When I started I had a vision in my head of a scarf I would make. Subtle, elegant. One color warp, one color weft. A simple twill.
I let go of that vision about half an hour after I started the actual task of weaving.
Ha ha. I couldn't bear the suspense. The same pattern over and over and over for six feet? Seventy-two long inches. How long would that take? How long exactly would I have to wait to try another pattern? How many weeks? At this once a week rate? Months?
So, I cheated. Well, lets just say I changed my vision. :)
Instead I embraced the joy of improvisation.
I started out varying the colors. Some combinations were better than others.
Then the patterns. Some patterns worked better than others.
I think I blushed like a little kid when one of the senior weavers complemented my undulating twill.
I'm not sure how much more warp I have to go. Maybe a foot or two. It's going to be a wild, crazy, sampler kinda scarf. A little of this, a little of that. Doesn't matter, I'm sure I'm going to love it no matter what. I'm also sure I can't WAIT to try a different loom with more harnesses and more pattern possibilities. Woot.
And weaving's not even the only fiber thing going on.
More later. :)
