The first lot of tablet weaving is finishedHere it is, rigged up in Anne's kitchen between the cooker and a weighted chair.
And a close-up of the worked section. I have started on a more ambitious piece and will mount it on an inkle loom which Rosie Price is going to lend to me. I hope it works because I don't fancy living in my kitchen while this is in progress.
I got home from Leamington Spa at eight o/'clock this morning, having avoided the rush hour traffic. Immediately I set about sorting things out for tomorrow. I am returning an electrical drier/airer to its owner so that is in the car after a wash down. All the spare yarn from the small Newbury Coat and the fabric for said coat is waiting in the hall.The finger-woven belt from Carol James's class at Convergence is completed and fits me. It is not perfect but good enough to wear.
This is Sunset on the Mudflats. The weft is silk noil plus Japanese paper gold thread.
Apart from that, the hall is cluttered up books I am taking tomorrow plus various packages of yarn. I am about to set out on a major project with Marion Proctor. I hope she is patient as I have never done this before! You know I am always up for a new Challenge.
