Waffle Weave (3)

The waffle weave is growing at an amazing rate. I am halfway through the first towel  - and I have cleaned out the garage and got most of the 'stuff' in the loom-room out of there and into the garage or parked round the rest of the house. Ruth and Anne gave me a hand to shift  things yesterday. 

Today is weaving course day and we have a small amount of snow but not enough to stop me getting to Newbury. 

Ruth is on a whistle stop tour. She arrived at lunchtime yesterday and is leaving for Portsmouth when I leave this morning. The objective, of course, being to visit Michael who is bright and bouncy and doing his exercises. He is definitely improving.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
