Before I take down my holiday decor, I really have to show off my virtual candles (grin)
Sometimes I breathe more deeply.
Sometimes I hold my breath.
Here is a Woven Words project I will talk about in later posts. This warp has been waiting patiently on Gary for the past month. I have been holding my breath.
I have also been pondering Syne's Weaving Resolutions. My comment to her didn't reflect the thousands of hours and scores of years I spend echoing her very words, trudging down those very roads. I am awed to think I have spent half a lifetime seeking answers to questions I didn't know I was asking, and I NEVER figured out how to find the balance between weaving and the rest of life.
In all of my years of weaving, I have never woven a hound's tooth check. When I received 20 more cashmere sweaters from this lovely man, Stephen, (making his sweater total 50!) he requested a hound's tooth check in bamboo and cashmere. How could I refuse? It was easy, fun, and oddly satisfying. I used Habu bamboo. I can't recall the weight, but I doubled each end and sett at 20 epi. I can't believe this is actually plain weave! The whole effect is achieved by winding 2 ends of each color and weaving 2 picks of each color.
