That's wonderful, Bonnie!! Your teaching is clear and succinct....and your enthusiasm is a delight!

Hmm...now I'm going up to look at those huge cones of variegated cotton that a former weaver "laid on me".

Hello Bonnie.

What beautifull. I have started weaving last year but your instruction are very clear. Thanks a lot. I will trie the not knot the next time I make a warp. Just now I am weaving the Malof scarf from Venne with 12 colors and black. I wish I would had know that not knot before

Bonnie, thank you so much for this great tutorial! How generous weavers are in sharing their knowledge!
I loved reading and listening about the Garden if 1000 Buddhas. I'm sure this horoscope is going to be a very special weaving for you. Enjoy!
