Weaving the Bamboo

There's really not too much to say except I love taking picture of weaving on the loom. I will pass on a piece of advice I failed to follow. A professional photographer told me I should put the date on every picture I take. Now that I have been taking digital photos for 4 years, I can see the value of her advice. I wish I had done it back then, but I am starting to now.

One of the great things about adding ikat to a warp is the great delight in seeing the patterns change. Those of you who weave complex patterns know this joy on a pick by pick basis, but we plain weavers have to find a way without having to think too much:)
